Well, my passport was issued by the Swedish Police authority. I know some immigrants, that has two passport, i.e. both from their birth country, and from the country they have moved to and lived in for many years. But I don't know any other state than the Swedish that would issue a second passport for me. So it's tied to citizenship
Ah, that's also a possible interpretation I guess. :D There are other kinds of pass-cards you may need nationally, often when people work at big companies they have a ID-card to be allowed to pass into the area. I know in Sweden Construction Builders use something called "ID06 pass card", sounds English to me. Can it be an international word for 'a national pass' ??
