Passports of the Confederate States

The Government of the Confederate States does not issue passports, except those for diplomatic purposes. In the Confederate States, ordinary passports are issued by each of the eleven confederate States. Sharing a common design, the passports of all eleven States use the same type and color of leather (federal grey) for the jacket of the passport booklet, use the same color (iridescent gold) for text, insignia, and design elements, and all of them make use of encrypted biometric RFID technology.

Use[edit]

With a valid State-issued C.S. passport or other State-issued identity card (such as a driver license, non-operator photo ID, voter ID, or other State-issued photo identification that serves as proof of citizenship), confederate State citizens are entitled to exercise their right of free movement throughout the Confederate States, unimpeded. Even though the respective States retain complete competence over matters of immigration in regards to non-CS citizens –including visa policy– (however, no State can discriminate against citizens of the other States), all eleven States have chosen to pool their respective residual sovereignty on immigration matters and formalized that decision into the interstate Common Immigration Policy Treaty Organization ("CIPTO"). CIPTO harmonizes the basic tenets of the Confederate States' State-based immigration policy and lays the general framework and general rules under which each State establishes and runs its own immigration and visa regime.

Common design features[edit]
