History of Passports
A passport is a document which certiﬁ es the identity and nationality of its holder for the
purpose of international travel. It is issued by a national government.
One of the earliest written records of a passport type document was in the Old Testament
in Nehemiah 2:7-9 at the time of the Persian Empire, about 450 BC. The king’s ofﬁ cial,
Nehemiah, asked to travel to Judea, and King Artaxerxes I gave him a letter to guarantee
safe travel through foreign lands.
Passports as we know them today, originated from a conference by the League of Nations
in 1920. It was recommended at that time that passports be issued in French and one other
language. Now, it is recommended that passports be issued in French or English, or in the
national language of the issuing country and in French or English.
