- ―Official statement on the Passport
Galactic Passports were registered with the Imperial Space Ministry, by order of Galactic Emperor Palpatine. Issued some time during the reign of the Galactic Empire, these passports allowed the bearer unrestricted passage throughout the galaxy. The passports included information about the bearer's identity, including birth date, place of birth, species, and gender. The passport was written in Galactic Basic Standard, using both Aurebesh and the High Galactic alphabet.
It is also a major felony to prevent the bearer unrestricted passage, with the punishment being persecution under existing Imperial statutes, which went up to and even included summary execution. The same sentencing applied to those who attempted to use the passport in an unlawful manner or if the passport itself was falsified or altered.
