Iceland Diplomatic Passport – Wife Of Minister

Iceland Diplomatic Passport – Wife Of Former Minister

Iceland passports are already hard to find but an Iceland Diplomatic is most rare and this one comes full of visas and stamps, issued to Gudrun Gislason, the wife of former cabinet minister Gylfi Gislason. Her passport was issued in 1971, then three times extended, and expired in 1980. Great visas and stamps showing the frequent travel as diplomat’s wife. Several diplomatic visas from Poland and Soviet Union (which are most rare), further East Germany, UK, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Greece, Portugal, West Germany, and Denmark. 

This Iceland Diplomatic passport is in very good condition but the spine has some imperfection, so a few pages are taped. However, the document is overall in very collectible condition and the failures are not really disturbing at such a precious collectible.
