A passport is one of the most important travel documents that is usually issued by a country’s government to its citizens.
It basically certifies the identity and nationality of its holder primarily for the purpose of international travel.
Having a passport is great but holding a powerful one is the joy of any traveller since it gives you access to more destinations to visit around the globe.
