We promise you that this is not a Belgian joke! The passport of the flat country will evolve to integrate comic book characters who have built Belgium’s worldwide reputation as a reference in the ninth art. What could be more natural for Tintin, the most famous drawn reporter in the world.
Belgium is attached to its comic book culture. And it is determined to show it when its nationals take the plane or the Eurostar. As of February 7, you will have to leaf through the Belgian passport to page six to see Tintin, the Château de Moulinsart and Captain Haddock appear. We will also recognize the rocket in Tintin’s album “Objectif Lune”. But Belgium has not only planned to praise the paternity of the most famous drawn reporter. The Smurfs and Lucky Luke will also appear in the passport.
This new official document is not only intended to highlight the famous Belgian comic book characters. It is also about strengthening passport security with new techniques. However, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has not planned to increase the cost of the Belgian passport, set at 65 euros for an adult and 35 euros for a minor.
Thanks to their sesame, Belgians can travel to 149 countries, including 110 where no visa is required.
