Argentina - Pope's Passport
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — Pope Francis may be the head of the Vatican state, but he's not giving up the right to travel as just another Argentine citizen.
The leader of the Roman Catholic Church has renewed his Argentine passport and national identity card, and Argentina's Vatican envoy told The Associated Press on Monday that the pope insisted on paying for the documents himself.
Renewing Argentine passports and identity cards usually costs about $55 at the official exchange rate.
Ambassador Juan Pablo Cafiero said he and a deputy went over to the pope's hotel in the Vatican gardens on Friday to personally take Francis' picture and fingerprints and record his signature using a notebook computer. By Monday, the documents were printed and ready for delivery.
