Spain : International Passport 'European Union' Pre-Biometric (2006 — 2016)

Spanish passports are issued to Spanish citizens for the purpose of travel outside Spain. Every Spanish citizen is also a citizen of the European Union. The passport, along with the national identity card allows for free rights of movement and residence in any of the states of the European Union and European Economic Area.

The interior pages are quite pretty showing faunas around the world.

This format was introduced on 24 July 2003. Interesting this passport was issued around a week before Spain introduced a new ICAO Biometric Passport on 14 August 2006.

The was only one recorded travel to Morocco with entry on 6 August 2006 and left by 12 August 2006.

The passport is in a poor condition with splashed water marks, dirts on pages and booklet itself in general was not properly taken care of.

Passports are valid for 5 years up to the age of 30 and for 10 years from the age of 30 onwards.

Children below the age of 14, who are not entitled to a Documento Nacional de Identidad (DNI = identity card), may hold a passport which will then contain the number of the DNI of one of their parents.

When a passport was stolen or lost, any new replacement passport issued to the holder will have the same date of expiry as the previous one.
