Yes, this may be ridiculous as it sounds, but it happened.
I left my passport on my desk for about 2 months. The desk is small and not very dirty. But today when I picked up the passport I noticed two small holes (with a radius of about one milimeter) that started in the last page. The two holes started from back to front just until the beginning of the visa pages, leaving the identification pages untouched.
I am Brazilian, and I am going to move to France by the end of July. I need to get an Visa and this takes about 2 months, and getting a new passport takes about a month. So this is a serious problem.
I am asking if there is a problem with these holes. I intend to apply for a visa with this passport, but I am afraid that this visa might get denied.
Here are some pictures for you to have a notion about the holes:

Holes in the back (last page)
My question is: Is this damage serious enough so that I am forced to get a new passport? I know it is obviously recommended to me to get a new one (I would do that) but the time is a serious resource in here.
Thank you for your time.
