Passports are a lot of things, from being the most powerful to the fanciest, to even the weakest. But have you ever heard of the most fun passport in the world? Belgium has just got that. The country has launched a new passport on January 27, 2022, with some of your favorite cartoon characters printed on it.
Some are calling it the coolest, others say it is the most fun, as these passports become available to the public from February 7, 2022. The all new passport comes with Belgium’s most recognisable fictional characters printed on its pages. So you have characters such as Tintin, the Smurfs, Lucky Luke, Mortimer, among others.
Belgium’s Foreign Minister, Sophie Wilmès said in a statement that the new passports are even more secure, and come with new personalisation techniques. She further added that these new passports will be “recognizable thanks to its original design, which honours one of the jewels of our culture: the heroines and heroes of comic strips.”
The Minister thanks the publishers, authors, and right holders of these comic characters who have participated in the project, resulting in this all new fun, and cool passport.
Much like the traditional design, the new passport comes in burgundy colour, with the terms, European Union, Kingdom of Belgium, and Passport written in four languages, Dutch, German, French, and English.
Passport holders will get to see a red and white checked rocket at the very start. Indicating Destination Moon, a comic book that features Tintin.
