Must know about Different Color Passports

Geographical Reasons – Countries might use a certain color due to their geographical location.

Political Motive – Passport colors might also be politically motivated.

Religion– The color green is very important to Islamic states. It is said that the Prophet Muhammad favored the color; therefore you will find that most countries in the Middle East and/or Islamic states have green passports.

National Identity – Other nations choose for styles that reflect their individual character and identity.

Representation of Passport Colors:

Blue: The American flag has a significant amount of the color blue in it, and so does the American passport. But only after 1976, before that they were black. It is further regarded as the color of the “new world,” our oceans, water and the sky – the best color for relaxation and meditation.

Green: The color green has special religious meaning to most Islamic states around the world; therefore most of the Islamic region passports consist of green color. But they are not the only ones; South Africa, Nigeria, and Senegal have green passports as well.

Red: Many of the Nordic countries have red passports, given the fact that red was a popular color during the Viking Age and can be found on many of the national flags. Passport for countries within the European Union also consists of a shade of burgundy.

Black: Black passports are the rarest of the bunch. African nations typically have black passports where black plays a prominent role. The black passport is the one used for people who are traveling on diplomatic missions. Just like the maroon ones, these passports are valid for five years.

Be A Traveller And Not A Tourist

When you are travelling to a new place, the best way to experience it is to become a part of the local population. You can start by dressing like them and enjoying their local delicacies instead of eating at food chains. Also, you can visit the place when they have a carnival or festival going on. That will truly enlighten you about the place. Which is why, it’s important to conduct a little research before starting your trip.

Using an Airport Taxi Service

Experienced and professional drivers

Any reputable taxi company will hire the well experienced and professional drivers. By using the drivers that make the regular airport transfers, the drivers will have a great understanding of the quickest routes and the traffic patterns for the particular city. This means that travelling with the experienced driver will give a sense of assurance, reliability and safety. Also, they are more likely to be punctual compared to the bus or train services, so there is a lot less time spent waiting around.

Increased flexible

Unlike a local bus or train service, the taxi can give greater flexibility and it is possible to fully customise the service to match the specific needs. This means it is possible to travel at a preferred time and not have to fit within the time-frame of public transport. Also, there is no need to make the regular stops for picking up other members of the public.

Plus, many of the taxi companies have the ability to offer a 24/7 service. This means a taxi is easily booked no matter the time of the day or night the service is needed.

Privacy

A further useful benefit of using the airport taxi service is the greater peace and quiet while enjoying a private travel experience. Most forms of public transport can have arguing couples, boisterous teenagers or screaming children, which is completely avoided when travelling in the comfort of a private taxi.
