Liechtenstein passports are issued to nationals of Liechtenstein for the purpose of international travel. The passport may also serve as proof of Liechtensteiner citizenship.[citation needed]

The cover of the new Liechtenstein passport, features the coat of arms of Liechtenstein on a blue background.

Effect of Liechtenstein citizenship[edit]

Liechtenstein citizens are treated as equal with Swiss citizens in Switzerland[clarification needed] and are permitted to take up residence in the European Union and EEA member states in addition to Liechtenstein (which is a member of the EEA).

Citizens of the European Economic Area (the European Union plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland) enjoy the freedom to travel and work in any European Union country without a visa, although transitory dispositions[clarification needed] may restrict the rights of citizens of new member states to work in other countries. The same rights are also accorded to citizens of Switzerland although they remain separate from the EEA.[why?]

Visa requirements[edit]
