WORLD PASSPORT

The World Passport is a document issued by the World Service Authority, a non-profit organization founded by Garry Davis in 1954, citing Article 13, Section 2, of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The  World  Passport  is  a  30  page  Machine  Readable  Travel Document  (MRTD*)   with   alphanumeric  code  line ,  scanned-in passport   photo and “ghost” security paper with embedded logo, the data page laminated, in 7 languages:
English , French , Spanish , Russian, Arabic, Chinese and Esperanto.
Each  passport  is  numbered  and  each  page  contains  the  World Citizen  logo  as  background.  Two  pages  are  reserved  for  affiliate identifications : diplomatic corps, organizations ,  firms , etc .  There are nineteen visa pages. In the inside back cover , there  is  space  for home address, next of kin, doctor, employer, driving license no. and national passport/ identity  number .  The  cover   is  blue  with  gold lettering.
The World Passport is similar in appearance to a national passport or other travel document. Indeed, the appearance is so close  that  in 1974  a  criminal  case  was  lodged  against  Garry  Davis  in  France regarding his issuance of World  Passports. [3]  In  1979 , the  World Passport was a 42-page document, with a dark blue cover, and text  in   English ,  Spanish ,  French ,  Russian ,  Arabic ,  Chinese ,  and Esperanto. It contained a five-page section for medical history and a six-page section for listing organisational affiliation. The fee charged at that time was $32 and postage for a three-year passport with the possibility of two years’ extension of validity  .[4] The latest edition of the World Passport was issued January 2007. It has an embedded “ghost” photo for security, covered with a plastic film .  Its  data  page  imitates  the  format  of  a  machine – readable passport, with an alphanumeric code bar  in  the  machine – readable zone (MRS)  enabling  it  to  be  scanned  by  an  optical  reader . However, in place of a valid ISO 3166-1  alpha – 3  code  in  the  MRS “issuer” and “nationality” fields, it uses the non-standard acronym “WAS”.  According  to  the  WAS  , the  latest  version  of  the  World Passport was filed with the International Civil Aviation Organization. [5] According to the WSA website, the application fee is $45 for a three-year document, $75 for a five-year document, and $100 for an eight-year document. A “World Donor Passport” valid for fifteen years with a special cover is issued for a donation of at least $400 which, according to the WSA, is used to issue free documents to refugees and stateless persons. [6] The applicant for World Passport needs to provide as proof of his or her identity along with the application for the World Passport either a notarized certification of the details on the form, a copy of his or her national identity papers or a fingerprint of the right index finger.[6] There are known cases in which people have been able to obtain World Passports in names other than their legal names; see the section on fraudulent issuance below.
