Your Passports

Sun Jan 09, 2005 2:05 pm

I have always had an interest in what passports of different nationalities look like, so I thought I'd start a post where we can all post the cover of our passport(s).

I'll start off. I am a dual citizen having Lebanese citizenship since birth and becoming a US citizen 5 years ago.

Here are my current passports:

Lebanon


United States


When I was young, I had my name in my mom's Lebanese passport and thus would travel with my mom. When I got older, I got my own Lebanese passport which I kept renewing. Lebanon offers 1-year and 5-year passports. I've always opted for the 5-year and just kept renewing every 5 years.

A lot of the information in the Lebanese passports is in Arabic, English, and French.

In March 2003, Lebanon began issuing new "high tech" passports with the bar code on the edge so that immigration officers can simply slide it through the machine and retrieve your info. This is called a Machine Readable Passport (MRP). It also has the photo imprinted on the passport itself and a hologram to prove authenticity. It is also much more compact, having thinner pages than the old passport. Lebanon was quite late in issuing these "high tech" passports as many other countries had switched to issuing these passports many many years ago.

I had to renew my Lebanese passport in winter 2003, and since they had begun to issue the new passports, I got the new passport and finally my old Lebanese passport which I had kept renewing and using for many years was retired.

The old passport was the basic old fashioned kind. A lot of the information was written by hand, with the photograph stapled onto it and laminated. The pages are also a lot thicker as I mentioned earlier. Here is it is, as you can see they changed the look with the new passports they began issuing in March 2003:



As you can see, they changed the color from red to blue, and they removed the shape of the country from behind the Cedar tree, Lebanon's symbol.

I became a US citizen 5 years ago and thus I was able to apply for a US passport. The United States issues 5-year passports for those under 16, while those over 16 recieve 10-year passports. As I was under 16 when I applied for my first US passport, I got a 5-year passport. This passport expired last year, so last month I got a new passport. As I am over 16 now and I got my now expired passport when I was under 16, I had to apply for a new one and could not simply renew it. So now I am on my 2nd US passport which is valid for 10-years.

The United States began issuing Machine Readable Passports many many years ago and introduced the holograms and imprinting the photo on the passport a few years ago, however they have pretty much looked the same for many many many years. As a result, my previous US passport looks no different, so I won't bother scanning it and putting it.  Smile

Since I became a dual citizen, I use my Lebanese passport only to get in and out of Lebanon. For all my other trips I use my US passport since I don't have to worry about getting visas in advance or simply get them upon arrival at the airport.

Since a lot of Airliners.net members are US citizens, I guess there is no point for many of you to post the covers of your passports.  Smile

Now let's see you passport(s)!

I'd show you my Korean passport if I had one. I have dual citizenship in the United States and the Republic of Korea but have never had any reason or desire to need a passport issued by the ROK.

Recently the photograph requirements for United States passports were tightened. Now passport photographs must fit more exacting requirements and not all passport photograph places meet them. The photograph must fit a size and spacing template, be of a certain clarity and the subject should not smile.

Yup, I had that issue when I was applying for a new passport. I had to apply for a new one entirely instead of renew my old one because I got my old passport when I was under 16.

Ummm... I'm smiling in my passport photograph. I never had the photographer or the person who accepted my application tell me otherwise. And I've used it in several countries since then, (UK 3 or 4 times, Germany, and Mexico), so I think it's probably valid. Why would they have a stupid-ass, non-sensicial rule like "the subject should not smile"? I mean.. jesus christ, how dumb and totalitarian is our government trying to become?

The reason you're not to smile in a passport picture now has to do with some technology they use. Canada has had this technology and people have been told not to smile in Canadian passport photos for some time now.

I'm not smiling in mine though that's because I have quite possibly the worst photo. Doesn't help either that I got my passport 1 month after I turned 16 so I'm stuck with that passport and photo until I'm 26.

Germany

An actual German passport:



An old German passport:



Every German can apply for a passport from the age of 16, it is valid for 5 years when you are under 25 and valid for 10 years when you are over 25. The new (red) passports are machine readable and provide the information about the owner in three languages (German, English, and French).

When you are under 16 you get a "Kinderausweis" which means translated "Childrens identification":



I think it is not machine readable and some countries do not accept it for immigration, in this case the children's name must be registered in the passport of the mother or father.

I hold dual US and Japanese citizenship, but I do not hold a Japanese passport since I really don't have much of a need for it. The only benefit it would give me is that it would save me about 15 minutes getting into Japan since the Re-Entry lines are usually a lot shorter than the Foreigner lines.

I'm glad there are a lot of replies, but I was hoping for more passport cover scans!

Thanks for those who posted the UK and German passports.

I remember I saw the UK passports a number of times, I think it's a nice passport.

I have an Indian passport. I'm also entitled to a French one, but India don't allow dual citizenship, so if I wanted the French one, I'd have to give up the Indian one. Which doesn't makke sense because I've always lived in India and plan to for ever.

Here's the passport cover:


And this is the inside cover (it's machine readable):


Here's a scan of a few entry & exit stamps:

An example of an Australian passport. However, my picture does look a little different from Mr. John Citizen's.



Text on right hand page reads:

"The Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia, being the representative in Australia of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, requests all those whom it may concern to allow the bearer to pass freely without let or hindrance and to afford him or her every assistance and protection fo which he or she may stand in need."

- Sums things up well. What does yours say?

The British passport has an equally comedic statement similar to the Ozzie one:

"Her Brittanic Majesty's Secretary of State Requests and requires in the Name of Her Majesty all those whom it may concern too allow the bearer to pass freely without let of hindrance and to afford the bearer such assistance and protection as may be necessary"

I think the words on the right-hand page are basically a bit of standardised fluff that doesn't mean much these days.

Here's what my passport says:

"These are to request and require in the name of the President of the Republic of India all those to whom it may concern to allow the bearer to pass freely without let or hindrance and to afford him or her every assistance and protection of which he or she may stand in need.

"By order of the President of the Republic of India"

I'm quite sure my father's French passport says something similar - unless this is a Commonwealth thing - let me see if I can find it.

Those restrictions on where you can travel are interesting. I remember my old passport used to say 'This passport is valid for travel to all countries except the Union of South Africa.'

And it's funny to see the British stamp is basically unchanged even today!

Jasepl,

Yeah, it's been sitting in a drawer for years and years. He has a newer Passort from the late 70's and early 80's too. I don't know where that is at the moment. It's got a lot of middle eastern stamps in it. To this day I don't know how my dad managed to travel as much as he did. I envy him though.

At least I know where I get my love of travel from :P

Springbok747, do you know why the SA passport has English and French written on the cover instead of English and Afrikaans, as I would rather expect?

I have a Dutch passport, don´t know if it´s the newest model because they keep changing them due to fraud security faults. Don´t have a scanner here in the office though...

I also have a Spanish "tarjeta de residencia", a residence card for EU citizens.

South Africa is part of the African Union, and the official languages of the African Union are all the African languages, English, French, Portuguese, and Arabic.

The French were the biggest colonizers in Africa, colonizing almost the entire Sahara and many areas the tropical West Africa region along the Gulf of Guinea, plus you had Belgian Congo.

So that's my guess.

I'm not surprised the S African passport has English and French - French is the "Diplomatic Language", diplomats in the Middle Ages all spoke French to each other regardless of their nationality. The word "passport" itself is of course French. My Australian passport has English and French, like on the ID page, each field is tagged "name / nom", "first name / prenom" etc etc.

RE: Your Passports

Wed Jan 12, 2005 9:53 am

I was wondering, how much passports in different countries cost in US dollars?

For US passports, if you are under 16, the passport costs $40USD plus a $30USD execution fee for a total of $70USD and it is valid for 5-years.

If you are over 16, the passport costs $55UST plus a $30USD execution fee for a total of $85USD and it is valid for 10-years.

For passport renewal, it costs $55USD for all ages. If you are renewing a passport you got when you were under 16, you cannot renew it, you have to apply for a new one.

For expedited service, you add $60USD regardless of whether you are applying for a passport or renewing.

US passports are 24-pages, but you can optionally ask for a 48-page one for those who travel a lot at no additional cost. You can also later on send your passport in to add more visa pages.

For Lebanese passports, the fees are absolutely ridiculous. Regardless of whether your age and whether you are applying for a passport or renewing a passport, it costs $40USD for 1-year validity and $200USD for 5-year validity.

I just think the fees are insane.

Basically, every 5 years I have to pay $200USD. Since I got US citizenship, I only use my Lebanese passport to get in and out of Lebanon. For visiting Syria though, it is easier to use the Lebanese passport since you don't need a visa at all and thus don't need to pay any fees, while for US passports, you have to get the visa (which you can get upon arrival in a Syrian airport or at the border) and the fee is somewhat high, I think around $50USD, maybe more. I may visit Syria for the first time this summer.

I wish Lebanon offers 10-year passports like the US does.

The passport is 48-pages.

What's also really stupid is the new modern passports are only issued in Lebanon. The old burgundy passport is not renewable in Lebanon, you have to get the new blue model which is fine since they want to standardize to the new ones. Delegations outside Lebanon cannot issue the new blue model, and can only renew it. They will however issue the old model and renew the old model which is stupid.

So it's just a mess.

So, what are the fees in other countries?

VonRichtofen,

Why did you need to get a visa to enter Taiwan?

It was my impression that Canadian citizens, like US citizens, do not require a visa to enter Taiwan for stays up to 30 days.

Those are nice stamps. I will scan and post mine tommorow, I have quite a few.

US passports are 24-pages, but you can optionally ask for a 48-page one for those who travel a lot at no additional cost. You can also later on send your passport in to add more visa pages.

Is it really so? Don't the passports usually have the sentence: "This passport is property of such and such country, it is valid for all countries of the world (except this and that). It contains X number of pages."
Doesn't the technology used for sewing the passport pages together and the order of numbering make it kinda difficult?
