last visa east germany

This is a German passport issued in Duisburg in 1983. Seven years later the German passport will become red and will be an EU passport. The passport was valid for five years, until 1988 but was renewed in Feb 1989, then valid until Feb 1992. The bearer went frequently to East Germany (DDR). The curious visa is on page 15. Issued in Wartha on 10 November 1989, which is one day after the fall of the wall! This is most probably one of the last visas you can find in a foreign passport. I believe after 9 November the DDR border guards only stamped entry into the DDR but not exit. A visa was no longer needed to enter the German Democratic Republic.
