RFID Passport

I am now the proud owner of an RFID passport, complete with a very thick page that says “do not stamp… gadgetry inside”. Apparently this will get me through customs faster, but I’ll still have to shave my beard off if I don’t want my shoes to be randomly selected for chemical swabbing yet again.

Next up, biometrics and DNA samples.

    Hola! Hugo and I have been traveling with these, I’ve still had to remove my bandanna and for some reason in Cuba was asked if I was born in England. It must be my non pommy accent coupled with country of birth: Australia bit in my passport which confounded them.
