Yugoslavian Large Collective Passport For 10 Persons
Collective or group passports are a type of travel document which are nowadays not used anymore (exception – see related link below). I do have a few in my collection and the latest collective passport I have seen was issued by Thailand in 1996. This one was issued by Yugoslavia in 1968, comes in a large A4-format and has visa from from Belgium with revenue stamp, Austria, UK and Germany. The later is very interesting as it was issued by the France embassy in Belgrade in their section “Protecting power of German interests” (Service de protection des interers allemands).
Furthermore one of the shown men is a popular Serbian politician which is recently again in the news because of the latest Serbian election results.
Milutin Mrkonjić (born 23 May 1942 in Belgrade) is a Serbian politician. He is one of the founding members of Socialist Party of Serbia. Milutin Mrkonjić graduated on Faculty of Civil Engineering of University of Belgrade in 1968 as a civil engineer for roads, airports and railways. He was the first director of CIP – Institute of Transportation. He was the head of Reconstruction Agency after NATO bombing of FR Yugoslavia in 1999. Ran for a president in 2008 election under slogans “Achievements speak for themselves” and “Our Comrade!”. Mrkonjić finished fourth with 5.97%. On May 8, 2007 Mrkonjić became Vice President of Serbian parliament and on July 7, 2008, he became Minister for Infrastructure in the Serbian government, then Minister for Infrastructure and Energy on March 14, 2011.
