When you travel out of the country, you always go through Immigration checkpoints. You present your papers and they either ask you questions, or they don’t. The fact is, no matter how you want to try to understand the standards of Immigration – especially when it comes to letting people in and out of a particular country -you can’t. For the most part, you can’t really have a vivid idea as to how these Immigration officers judge a person.
Still, you fall in line, give them your sweetest smile, present to them you passport and other pertinent documents, in the hope that the officer will let you through. There is, however, one thing that you can do in order to have a greater chance of crossing from one international border to another: using leather passport holders. Let’s explore this idea.
First, by using leather passport holders, you are showing the world that you have class and elegance. Leather is considered a luxury material – be it about a leather business card holder or a leather fanny pack. So, if you use leather passport holders, you are indeed telling your Immigration Officer that you mean business and that goes without saying that you have the necessary papers with you.
Second, as using leather passport holders spells elegance, it further demonstrates that you have the money. Whether you like it or not, getting to another country has a lot to do with money. Ever heard of “show money?” Well, it means that you cannot get into another country if you don’t have enough assets in your home country. This will ensure that you will indeed go back to your home country.
Third, by using leather passport wallets, you are showing that you always take care of your things, especially the most important documents. Because you are using an expensive material just to store and/or cover your passport with, you are showing the Immigration Officers that you hold your passport dear. You do not use the plastic covers that are usually given to you for free by your travel agency. Worse, you are not leaving your passport unprotected and unattended by having nothing to cover it.
Lastly, the use of leather passport wallets is one way of preparing yourself for an international life. Whether you are going to another country for a vacation or to stay there for good, the way that you take care of your passport shows that you are ready to be in the international arena. After all, once your passport shows that you’ve already been to a lot of countries, it will be easier for you to get through any immigration checkpoint.
Indeed, going out of the country is not a simple task. You have a lot of things to prepare. Of course, you would need ample cash just in case. Still, it is wonderful to have a peek at the other parts of the world. And if you are presented with this chance, don’t spoil it by haphazardly handling your passport – instead, use leather passport holders.
