The World Passport is a document issued by the activist group World Service Authority, in recognition of an individual's world citizenship and his commitment to a "One World" ethos. Accepted as valid travel documentation at customs in a few countries, including Ecuador, Togo and Tanzania, the World Passport is a symbol of your commitment to the ethos and demonstrates a heightened awareness of your global responsibility.
