IDs and Passports, Explained

July 9, 0001 / July 24, 2017

Last week, thousands of people logged into the live Q&A session with Lena De Winne, CEO and Vice-President of NGO Asgardia. A lot of the questions pertained to Asgardia’s IDs and passports.

“We are working on creating the Parliament, creating the government, and creating the banking system and the national currency SOLAR,” De Winne explained. “The ID card at this point is the card that will be a fully protected, chip-integrated card that would eventually allow you -- when they are available -- to receive services Asgardia will provide, and to operate within the currency system.”

She continued: “We will start issuing passports as booklets for traveling only when we have reached the recognition with other states as a state, that they recognize Asgardia’s passport as a valid document for crossing national borders. We are very realistic, this is a long-term goal.”

De Winne reminded her viewers that IDs and passports would only be received in person, and that documents are taken very seriously. “We are now asking everyone, and it’s at your own discretion, to fill in your profile. This data needs to be correct. When you decide to claim your documents, you will be asked to present yourself to the ambassador of Asgardia. In the long run, it is planned to have six permanent embassies around the world, per number of continents.”

Most importantly, she said, is that “one of the biggest premises of Asgardia is that there are no borders. When one looks at the Earth from space, you do not see borders - you see blue, you see green, you see the yellow of the desert. You do not see borders. Borders exist on maps and in human minds. It is also for that reason that only boundaries of the continents are visible from space. There will be six embassies, one per continent, in Asgardia. But we will be working to create local representations and, of course, do our best to help people sustain their interaction with us.”

There is one thing that is more valuable than "tracking, telemetry, and command".  That is the inspiration that comes from the heart.  This is just as true on earth as it is in space.  I hope my space passport will reflect the noblest of my thoughts and intentions.

I truly believe in this venture and hope that other states/countries recognize Asgardia as a true nation as much as we do.

It may grow over time possibly

I like the idea of dividing up the planet on what can be seen from space.  In fact, we need to be thinking about every aspect of this nation from an overall, external and neutral perspective like this.

Agree with the number of Embassies, one per continent and we need several Consulates, several per country or a consulate office in the capital of each country and in each mayor city. 

We need a broad representation in earth.

Six Embassies... thats thinking outside the box, or little blue bubble more precisely.

 A change of perspective makes sense as an ideal for a spaced based/space-centric Nation. (Considering the proposal as i understand it; That the 'Capital' will be nominally located on the Asgardia--1 Cubesat in Low Earth Orbit initially) and its citzens on Terra represented in Cyberspace. 

It takes time to forge a new Nation...especially one that is not limited by current concepts as fixed borders; prejudices; history; or any other defining status quo vis a vis the world we live in now. 

Consider this:

That we are part of a Great Experiment to redefine tbe human condition. Pioneers on a 'final' frontier with no limits to what we can dream and achieve.... IF we dare to go where humanity has not before... (yes, 'Star Trek' references....i know; but it resonates)

Live the Dream...Reality is how you define it! Belive in our future and a hope for a better tomorrow. So we will build it one step at a time.we have already taken the first small steps for humanity. The journey WILL be long and full of uncertainty for sure...BUT we will keep working towards that future.

ASGARDIA  your people are with you!
