In some countries, the international passport or passport for travel abroad is a second passport, in addition to the internal passport, required for a citizen to travel abroad within the country of residence.
In most countries, a passport inside the country is not required (although it might be one of several means of identification) and no separate internal passport exists. In that case, international passport means normal passport.
Separate passports for travel abroad existed or exist in the following countries:
- Russia: see Russian passport
- Ukraine: see Ukrainian passport
- In Soviet Union, there were several types of international passport: an ordinary one, a civil service passport, a diplomatic passport, and a sailor's passport. See Passport system in the Soviet Union.
- Countries of the Eastern Bloc had a system of internal/international passports, similar to the Soviet one.
