Cenaesian Passports & International Visa Statuses

The Cenaesian passport is a travel and optional government services document issued in the name of the Cenaesian Crown by the Foreign Ministry since 1874. From 1252 until then passports were managed by the Ministry of Interior's Bureau of Revenues. They have always been issued to to Cenaesian citizens, and since 1890 to Cenaesian Permeant Residents, and since 1968 to Organized Periphery Zone Permeant Residents. A valid Cenaesian passport enables holders to travel internationally with all the rights and privilege's afforded by foreign nations to holders of Cenaesian passports. It also serves as an additional proof of citizenship, or in the case of permeant residents and Organized Periphery Zone Permeant Residents as proof of residency. Additionally, a valid Cenaesian passport may be used as a proof of identity for record in domestic tax filings and must be used as part of proof of identity for record in all tax returns involving foreign wages on wages or dividends greater than 10,000 denarii.

All variants of the Cenaesian passport are treated equally, and grant the bearer right to consular services and in very limited circumstances emergency transport to Cenaesia from abroad. All classes of passport except diplomatic are legally required to be treated equally by foreign countries, or automatic economic sanctions and reprisal travel restrictions are implemented alongside formal diplomatic protests.

Since 1962, the design of the Cenaesian passport has been a two-tone leather with the front cover being a royal blue with the upper right corner reserved for text and a cenaesian sun in white with a pattern of embossed cenaesian suns. The rear cover is black leather, with both front and back being uncommonly thick. Passports for Organized Periphery Zone Permeant Residents are single color black leather. Since 1992, the front cover of all passports been thinned to enable machine readable data for automated kisoks both domestically and abroad.

Passport Variants & History

The type of passport is indicated on the front cover, and for specific types also the leather color. The modern day royal blue color derives from the earliest passports issued, which were utilized principally for recording of tax payments to provincial and imperial officials. Because these documents were issued in the name of the crown, and generally reserved for those who had enough wealth to necessitate high taxation the expensive royal blue dye was used to discourage counterfeit documents. This was a direct response to the 1862 Estate Affair, which saw falsified taxation documents to sustain a property pyramid and scam in the port city of Mosocu. 

Therefore the tax documents were also used as proof of identity from the earliest dates. The name too derives from this purpose of proving taxes paid and identity verification with the literal Oseanian translation "papers seen". However, by the start of the 20th century advances in technology and synthetic dyes enabled the production cost of the passport to be dramatically lowered. This coincided with transformation in relations between formally organized major states and the rise of the 'stateless' regions across the globe that began to require even middle income or poor individuals to be capable of proving their identity both at home and abroad. This was codified with the 1911 Identity Stratification Act which identified a passport as a necessary component for any cenaesian citizen or national to enter or exit the nations borders, and likewise with any foreign individual. 

Each variant passport is designed to serve a different internal administrative purpose for identity verification with the exception of the Military & Diplomatic Passports, these two (of which the military variant is technically a type of the latter) serve a distinct purpose abroad as identifying the holder as serving as an official representative of Cenaesia in some capacity and benefiting from the various rights and privileges afforded to diplomats by various conventions and treaties.  

Domestically the Cenaesian National type is an important identity document for non-citizens who are eligible for consular services abroad and possess the right to live, work, and study in Cenaesia. Since non-nationals are not eligible for birth certificates nor National Pension IDs the passport remains an important document to certify legal work status and gain access to the National Pension System without an NPID. Similarly this documentation is vital for residents in the Organized Periphery Zone, who gain access to Cenaesian Consular services abroad and the right to live, work, and study within Cenaesia. Notably, this class of non-citizens is not eligible for the National Pension System, has less domestic legal rights, and is able to be deported with their status revoked if they commit specific crimes.
