A passport is an official travel document issued by a government that contains a given person’s identity. It enables its holder to travel to and from foreign countries. Passports are an accepted form of identification, and they are usually required when booking air travel. If you’re traveling to a foreign country, you will need a passport to enter. Passports are also used as a tool to protect the identity of the owner.
It is not required to have a passport to enter your own country. However, if you plan to cross any international borders, you will need a passport. Good to know: The word passport is derived from the Medieval Latin word “passaportum”, from the French word “passe-port” and from the Italian “passaporto” which means “a travel document that allows the bearer to pass through a border or a checkpoint.”
