Es bien sabido que algunos pasaportes son más poderosos que otros. Tomemos, por ejemplo, el pasaporte alemán, considerado como la herramienta de entrada global más poderosa en la Tierra. Como informaron anteriormente Travel + Leisure, los titulares de pasaportes alemanes pueden visitar 177 países de todo el mundo sin necesidad de visado.

Y aunque ser capaz de visitar más países es genial, lo que puede ser incluso más fresco es ser un miembro portador de la tarjeta del pasaporte más exclusivo del mundo: la Soberana Orden Militar de Malta.

Según el Independiente, el orden católico, que tenía su soberanía reconocida por el Papa Pascual en 1113, es el hogar del pasaporte más raro del mundo. De hecho, sólo 500 de estos pasaportes están en circulación en todo el mundo en este momento, de acuerdo con la Orden.

Los pasaportes diplomáticos, de acuerdo con la Orden Soberana de Malta, sólo se conceden a “los miembros del Soberano Consejo (el gobierno), a los jefes y miembros de sus Misiones Diplomáticas (así como a su consorte ya sus hijos menores) Salvo pocas excepciones, a altos cargos a cargo de misiones especiales dentro de la Orden de Malta “.

Los pasaportes sólo permanecen válidos durante cuatro años y están estrictamente vinculados a la duración de una asignación dada por la Orden.

La Orden Soberana de Malta mantiene relaciones diplomáticas con 106 estados, lo que significa que todos estos estados aceptan los pasaportes diplomáticos como una forma válida de identificación. Los pasaportes incluso incluyen características biométricas y cumplen con las normas de la Organización de Aviación Civil Internacional (OACI).

It’s well-known that some passports are more powerful than others. Take, for example, the German passport, thought of as the most powerful global entry tool on Earth. As Travel + Leisure previously reported, German passport holders can visit 177 countries around the world without needing a visa.

And while being able to visit more countries is cool, what may be even cooler is being a card-carrying member of the world’s most exclusive passport: the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.

According to the Independent, the Catholic order, which had its sovereignty recognized by Pope Paschal in 1113, is home to the world’s rarest passport. In fact, only 500 of these passports are in circulation around the globe right now, according to the Order.

Diplomatic passports, according to the Sovereign Order of Malta, are granted only to “the members of the Sovereign Council (the government), to heads and members of its Diplomatic Missions (as well as their consort and minor children), and – with very few exceptions – to senior figures in charge of a special missions within the Order of Malta.”

The passports only remain valid for four years and are strictly linked to the duration of a given assignment by the Order.

The Sovereign Order of Malta maintains diplomatic relations with 106 states, meaning all of these states accept the diplomatic passports as a valid form of identification. The passports even include biometric features and are compliant with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards.

Currently, the Sovereign Order of Malta is active in 120 countries, where it helps to care for people in need through its medical, social, and humanitarian works. The Order is especially involved in helping people living in the midst of armed conflicts and natural disasters. It is also a permanent observer status at the United Nations.

Additionally, as the Order noted on its site, “It is neutral, impartial and apolitical.” As the Independent explained, the order is currently made up of over 13,500 knights, dames, and chaplains along with 80,000 permanent volunteers and 25,000 employees, so obtaining one of those 500 coveted passports is even rare among this limited crowd.
