The Kadolhan passport (Kadolhan: Кадољска путовница / Kadoljska putovnica) is the primary travel document issued to Kadolhan citizens for international travel.

Passports are issued by the Ministry of Internal Affairs, and if the citizen resides abroad, at the embassy. Every citizen is only allowed to own one Kadolhan passport, official passports are issued to members of the Cabinet of Ministers, public services and non-diplomatic staff at embassies. Diplomatic passports are issued to high-level government officials.

History[edit]

The first travel documents for travel overseas by Kadolhan citizens were introduced in 1869 in the form of a letter. These letters required a specific stamp to be considered genuine and official, which was only obtainable from government officials. In 1920, the Kadolhan government introduced a passport in the form of a booklet, but there were three types, a official passport, diplomatic passport and a regular civilian passport, much like the current ones today. A machine-readable passport was introduced in 1989, followed by a biometric passport in 2006, which is the current one adopted.
