Free Republic of Verdis

This month, the High Commission of the Kingdom of Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) in London confirmed that Verdis’ passports have officially been recognised by the Chief Immigration Officer of Eswatini as legal documents in the Kingdom of Eswatini.

While Verdis has not officially begun relations with the Kingdom of Eswatini, Verdisian identifications have now been recognised by the Kingdom of Eswatini as legal documents. This has been seen as a major stepping-stone in Verdis’ progress in nation-building as the first UN member state to recognise Verdis’ passports.

UPDATE (08/03/2023):
After continued communications between the Principal Secretary of Eswatini’s Foreign Ministry and Verdis’ Foreign Ministry, the two governments have agreed to take a different approach and instead first focus on future diplomatic relations instead of recognition of identifications and passports.
