According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs press release, the passport has been designed and will be instantly recognizable through the original design and pays tribute to the cartoon characters. The old passport remains valid even after February 7, until the validity date stated on it. The new passport features a plethora of Gothic and baroque buildings on its pages, according to AP.

Furthermore, the Belgium passport will now include Tintin, moon rocket and the Moulinsart mansion of his friend as well as Smurfs and Lucky Luke. Even though the Belgium government has introduced the new cartoon book appearance, the government has informed that the security has been improved and that the security elements were doubled to 48. Belgium Ministry of Foreign Affairs informed the development in a tweet and also shared the video of how the passport would look.
