I went to the "world passport" website and although it may have had so validity 20 years ago - a lot of the examples of countries where the "passport" was stamped vary from near 10 to 30 years ago. Ever since 9/11 the world security
systems have dramatically changed and are still changing. It is highly unlikely - 99.9% - that any first world country would allow admittance using such a "passport." I say 99.9% because strange thing could happen and the general rule
of "never say never." I would suspect that the people who have this type thing are using it just like my young child did on trans-Atlantic flights were "toy" type "flight logs" were given out to all the kids
with the Captains signature in it. This "world passport" would be used in as a novelty accompaniment to your national passport which is your official legal
- - In today's world you if your are not from a tight list of first world western countries (eastern first world countries don't always accept western first world and vice versa) without a large, full page sized heat imprinted visa with your photo
, etc. contained in it. No more little rubber stamps for "pre-approved visas."
- - Specifically the French - world-wide - are now concerned about your medical insurance
coverage especially the "repatriation of remains" - getting your body out of their country. Proof of medical
coverage is demanded along with the visa application.
- - First world, western country citizens and some others are still allowed the short term (rarely exceeding 90 days) "visitor" visa upon arrival with proof of confirmed departure travel arrangements. Normally this is always via "air travel" as it is the "given" method of moving around the world. If you can demonstrate the ability to leave by common air travel then they don't worry about whether you come and go by boat, freighter, or jet-ski.
- - Resolutions passed by the U.N. or any other "non-national entity" have validity only to the extent that "real" national governments want to honor them which is also a variable with time and the political flux of world politics.
- - So in reality, you have "NO right" to world travel unless granted by the politicians of a country. And that can vary with time and world events
- - The "safe harbor" provisions of the International Maritime Treaty used to allow 10 days for repairs
, whatever and you had to remain under "quarantine" rules. After 9/11 that has been eroded back to "zero days" in some countries and in others there have been major additional insurance
and inspections requirements imposed. It has caused some, not so minor, squabbles in the maritime shipping
industry especially amongst 3rd world countries whose ships are sometimes not so new or well maintained. That situation is still evolving.
- - Within the confines/borders of your home country you may pontificate about "rights" but out here in the "real" world I wouldn't suggest getting too high up on your soap box as you may find yourself being cut down to size not too gently.
