Passport is a German jazz ensemble led by saxophonist Klaus Doldinger.

Passport was initiated in 1971 as a jazz fusion experimental group, similar to American groups such as Weather Report. The ensemble's first recording was issued in 1971, and through the 1970s had a constantly revolving membership, though it continued to release albums frequently. The group is still active, recording for Atlantic Records and Warner Bros. Records among others.
