In 2013, a 9 year-old British girl passed through Turkish customs with a toy passport with gold teddy bears on the front that identified her as a unicorn. Her mother accidentally handed over the passport that the girl had made for her toy unicorn, and the customs offіcer accepted and stamped it

U.K. girl uses her toy unicorn’s fake passport to get through Turkish customs: report

A couple were left stunned after their nine-year-old daughter managed to pass through Turkish customs officers – with a passport identifying her as a UNICORN.

And when the family passed through customs at Antalya airport to start their one-week holiday, flustered mum Nicky accidentally handed over the toy’s passport instead of Emily’s.

But they were stunned when they later realised their mistake – and discovered passport officials had even STAMPED the unicorn’s passport, granting it access to the country.

Nicky, 43, from Cwmbran, South Wales, said: “I didn’t realise until I was putting the passports away. There was a moment of panic when I thought someone would come chasing after us, but nothing.

    What was customs suppose to do? That unicorn had diplomatic immunity.

    I know at least 6 people who have travel on someone’s else’s passport and had zero issues either outbound or inbound. Happens way more than people think.

    If I was young enough to have a stuffed animal like this, and I traveled a lot, I would absolutely see how many customs officers I could get to stamp my animal’s passport.

    I had been using my passport for two years without incident when one TSA agent checking me in for a flight said, “I cannot accept this until you sign it,” and handed me a pen. I said, “Oh, wow, I just went in and out of Canada and nobody said anything.” He shook his head and said, “I did not just hear that… I did not.”

    meanwhile I fear for my life doubting my own identity with a perfectly fine passport everytime I go trough customs.

    A similar thing happened to my wife and I entering the UK. We had inadvertently swapped passports. No problemo! Stamped and ushered through.

    Haters will say the guy didn’t take his job seriously and stamped without paying attention.

    Real bro’s will say the guy is wholesome and did it on purpose to make the girl happy.

    Build a bear workshops sell passports for the stuffed toys and immigration officers will gladly put a stamp in them when entering a country. My kids have these with many stamps. Immigration officers are humans too.

    I went to the US (from England) with my family when I was a kid and the guy checking the passports in America looked at my passport and said “he looks suspicious”. We chuckled and went to carry on through but the guy said “stop!” and then started questioning me about my identity and where we was going as a family. I was maybe 6 or 7 years old. I didn’t know what to do or say. It was ridiculous.

    A friend of mine accidentally kept his passport in his ski pants pocket for a whole two weeks of skiing. Needless to say, it was a soggy mess when he found it. When he held up his passport up at Canadian passport control, the photo literally fell off. They still let him through though.
