Vince passport

Vince Lestrade's Republian passport

A passport is a document required to enter Arstotzka. It is the primary identification document, and all entrants should carry one at all times. Passports carry information about the entrants such as name, sex, date of birth and nationality. The passport cover colors vary depending on their country of issue.

The passport is one of the four documents the inspector can stamp a denial or approval on. The other three are the temporary visa slip, the passport seizure slip and Jorji Costava's fake passport.

If an entrant is missing a passport, highlight the Entrant must have a passport rule in the rulebook and the empty counter in front of the entrant to interrogate them.
