Before this article will make any sense, I strongly recommend that you go over the latest post on INCSILENTNOMORE by AE on the release of a Diplomatic Passport issued in the name of the King and Queen.

(According to WordPress guidelines, it appears photos of passports are disallowed posting, so no images here, my dear firends,)

So what is a Diplomatic Passport?

diplomatpassport“A diplomatic passport is a passport which is issued to someone who must travel internationally on official state business. Diplomatic passports are classically given to diplomats and consuls when they are posted overseas, and they may be issued to other people within the government as well, depending on the circumstances. Diplomatic passports are usually a different color from other types of passports, making them very easy to identify; black is a classic color for diplomatic passports. Carrying a diplomatic passport does not entitle someone to diplomatic immunity.

In order to receive a diplomatic passport, someone must indicate that he or she will be traveling overseas on state business, representing a national government in another nation. Many nations issue diplomatic passports and other special passport types through an agency which is separate from the regular issuance agency, and these passports also require special application forms along with forms which confirm that the bearer specifically needs a diplomatic passport, rather than a regular passport or another type of special passport.” [http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-a-diplomatic-passport.htm]

Let’s say you have a Diplomatic Passport, so what?

“The benefits of traveling on a diplomatic passport are endless. Easy passage at borders, special lines at customs, baggage inviolability are just a few. Traveling to conflict zones and protecting your safety and privacy when your original passport would put you in harms way are others. Zipping through customs lines with bags that are not allowed to be opened. There are people who use a diplomatic passport to travel with sensitive documents that need to be protected from intruders. Others use it to protect their lives.

Here are some additional benefits:

  • Red carpet treatment and diplomatic lounge use at many airports
  • No tax liability on several income sources
  • No counting the days for immigration purposes
  • Easier visa restrictions
  • Use of CC or CD or Consul license plates on cars
  • Access to salon d’honneur government lounges
  • Prestige internationally
  • Instant door opener in political or business environments
  • Meeting top ranking government officials in any country
  • Sovereign inviolable status of your home and residence
  • Free visas to any country and visa free travel in many cases
  • Never pay airport departure tax
  • Volvo and BMW diplomatic cars at 20-40% discount (max 2 cars per year)
  • Travel upgrades on airlines and hotels.”

Let’s say you are not connected with government but wish to obtain a Diplomatic Passport, is this possible? Read on.

OBTAINING A DIPLOMATIC PASSPORT

In spite of what many internet sites try to make you believe, diplomatic passports are not available for sale on the internet. The ones sold on the net are forged used passports with altered numbers. The use of such passports may lead to arrest and confiscation of your documents. A diplomatic passport can only be obtained through a diplomatic brokerage or by getting a foreign service government job. We can help you get a diplomatic passport quickly and efficiently through a diplomatic appointment. Through our global network of diplomats, foreign service officers and government officials, we’ve been able to secure a diplomatic passport for most of our clients. Your diplomatic passport is delivered to you at a Foreign Ministry office or an official embassy. Set up a free initial consultation with us.”

How much would it cost?

“COSTS AND PAYMENTS

Getting a diplomatic passport is a complex process and such a document is a highly valued asset of governments. After an initial consultation we will draw up a plan of action which we’d have you approve. After paying an initial retainer we begin the application process for you. You need to make a partial payment once your application is accepted and a final payment once you receive your documents. The costs vary based on political winds, the number of applications in the pipeline and the issuing countries. Accept to pay anywhere from $60,000-$250,000 including all fees and costs.”

Am I just making this up? Read the offer of Diplomatic Consulting.

Some may just say that this is all hogwash and the site mentioned is a scam. But did you know that on the popular scamadviser.com – site you use to check if any thing is a scam or not – this site received a safe 74% rating? But actually any site should be considered with a grain of salt.  Similar to our SWS Survey and the Pulse Asia. Though not completely accepted as accurate, still many consider it reliable.

The bottom line of course is always plain common sense.  What you actually see, feel, and comprehend. That should always be the benchmark.

Going back, if you were a religious leader, how should you be travelling?

Temporary Religious Worker Visa

Generally, a citizen of a foreign country who wishes to enter the United States must first obtain a visa, either a nonimmigrant visa for temporary stay, or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. Temporary religious worker (R-1) visas are for persons who want to enter the United States to work temporarily in religious capacities.

As a Temporary Religious Worker, You Must:

be a member of the same religious denomination as the religious organization you plan to work for in the United States for at least two years before that organization files a petition on your behalf;

  • be coming to work as a minister or in a religious vocation or occupation in the United States;
  • be employed by a non-profit religious organization in the United States (or an organization affiliated with the religious denomination in the United States); and
  • work at least part time, an average of at least 20 hours per week.

For Some Temporary Religious Activity, a Visitor (B) Visa Can Be Used

Certain religious related activities can be undertaken using a visitor (B) visa, such as private worship, prayer, meditation, informal religious study, and attendance at religious services or conferences in the United States. Also, a visitor visa is generally appropriate for ministers of religion seeking to come to the United States temporarily, whose wages and reimbursement will be paid by their own religious group outside the United States, and when coming for:

  • An evangelical tour, without taking an appointment with any one church; or
  • Exchanging pulpits temporarily with U.S. counterparts; or
  • Members performing missionary or voluntary service for a denomination, such as to aid the elderly or needy.  

When you have a religious vocation or profession, or are a religious worker coming temporarily to be employed, with your salary paid by a non-profit religious organization in the United States, the visitor visa is not permitted, and you must have a religious worker (R) visa or other work visa.” [https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/other/religious.html]

Now the 64 dollar question is how our King and his Queen managed to obtain a Diplomatic Passport?

“Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses
And all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty
Together again.”

Good night my dear friends, Ms, Goofy and her associate Katy are acting up again. “Overtime again boss, you forgot to feed us,” they seem to be complaining. Come to think of it, I haven’t fed them yet and it’s already 9 PM. “Sorry guys, it won’t happen again,” I say. They answer with,”Arooooooo and meoooowwwww.” Translated, “Tell it to the marines 🙂 ”
