Somaliland: The World Passport could benefit Somaliland citizens


world passportBy: Mohamed Ali/Medeshi

I obtained the World Passport in 1979 while working at Jubail Commercial Port in Eastern Saudi Arabia for the Saudi Ports authority under Filipino stevedoring contractor (PSPC).

I have since then lost the passport and have recently come across the site that promotes World Citizenship. This passport could be very much useful to all those citizens that currently live in an-unrecognized countries such as Somaliland Republic. Many others from Taiwan and similar countries use the passport . There are more than 160 countries that issue visas for people holding World Government Passport .

I know that many young people in Somaliland are yearning for access to free travel aboard and are , therefore , deprived of this by the lack of recognition of Somaliland by the International community .

I have , therefore , decided to publish this article to give a chance to those that need Internationally recognized passport to access the benefits of the World Citizen Passport and also to optionally join the World Citizenship society .

You may no longer need to seek EU, or US citizenship for the sake of passports.

The Mandate :

The mandate for the WORLD PASSPORT is Article 13(2) of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights:

Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.

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.

For nation-state recognition, please go to Documents / Visas.

The World Passport represents the inalienable human right of freedom of travel on planet Earth. Therefore it is premised on the fundamental oneness or unity of the human community.

In modern times, the passport has become a symbol of national sovereignty and control by each nation-state. That control works both for citizens within a nation and all others outside. All nations thus collude in the system of control of travel rather than its freedom. If freedom of travel is one of the essential marks of the liberated human being, as stated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, then the very acceptance of a national passport is the mark of the slave, serf or subject. The World Passport is therefore a meaningful symbol and sometimes powerful tool for the implementation of the fundamental human right of freedom of travel. By its very existence it challenges the exclusive assumption of sovereignty of the nation-state system. It is designed however to conform to nation-state requirements for travel documents. It does not, however, indicate the nationality of its bearer, only his/her birthplace. It is therefore a neutral, apolitical document of identity and potential travel document.

A passport gains credibility only by its acceptance by authorities other than the issuing agent. The World Passport in this respect has a track record of over 50 years acceptance since it was first issued. Today over 150 countries have visaed it on a case-by-case basis. In short, the World Passport represents the one world we all live in and on. No one has the right to tell you you can’t move freely on your natural birthplace! So don’t leave home without one!
