Being a diplomat - that is a person who generally conducts negotiations or embarks on trips of goodwill to countries other than their home nation - affords a person many opportunities in life.
Primarily, it offers an opportunity to travel all over the world to meet with foreign government officials and heads of state in order to help enrich communications between the home and foreign nations.
In order to travel, however, a diplomat must be in possession of a diplomatic passport which will identify them as such in a legal manner that is often accompanied by many other perks and privileges.
In order for the diplomat to receive their official travel documents and thus enjoy diplomatic immunity, they must fill out a Diplomatic Passport Application as well as applications for any necessary visa that must obtained for the country of travel.
A diplomatic passport application must be filled out in a timely manner in order for all documents to be in place and proper before the diplomat embarks on his or her trip.
In order to fill out the diplomatic passport application properly, you will need to have your documents in order and signed then present them in person at the Department of State, where, as it happens, you will also take your passport photographs.
It is important to have multiple pictures taken and request the negatives as well so that you may apply for any documentation that might be needed once you get to your country of travel.
During the diplomatic passport application process, you will be required to present the orders you have received for travel which will state where you are traveling to and for what purpose... this helps prevent false diplomatic missions by ensuring the person applying for and receiving a diplomatic passport is eligible to do so.
Often times, diplomats will take their family with them when they travel in order for their children to get worldly experience.
If this is going to be the case for you, it is important to allow the children to receive their own passports so that neither the parent nor the child is tethered to the other should they wish to travel independently.
These passports can be obtained during the diplomatic passport application process as well. Once you receive your passports, make sure all your travel documents are in order and enjoy your trip.
