  • Official Documents

Passports are generally issued by states in favour of their own nationals according to the laws or regulations of the state concerned. Because of the importance attached to a passport, states invariably require their passport issuing authorities to establish the identity, allegiance and national status of the applicant beyond all reasonable doubt before issuing a passport. .... The conditions for issue of passports vary from state to state, but the criteria which are generally followed would appear to suggest that one of the matters to be taken into consideration is whether the person, who has applied for the passport, would be in a position to support himself while sojourning abroad. Another factor which has assumed prominence in modern times is the political beliefs and affiliation of the person concerned.
