Cold War-era Republic of China (Taiwan) passport

This was inspired by rchen, who recently posted something similar. I'm doing a bit of house cleaning and came upon my childhood passport.

Great document from the Cold War!

It's interesting that today there is something like that in the Muslim countries that issue their passports as unvalid to visit Israel.

@Ripituc: Do the Muslim passports actually say Israel?

Ripituc said...

Yes, according to Wikipedia.

Here is one example, on an old Bangladeshi passport that also ruled out visits to Rhodesia, Taiwan and South Africa.
