Seat (legal Entity)
In legal English, the seat of a corporation or organisation, as a legal entity, is the location of its headquarters.[1] According to international and national procedural law, "specific legal actions with legal effect for and against the legal entity can be performed at the seat of this entity."[1] However, "the term 'seat' is sometimes also used in a broad sense without a specific legal meaning. In this case [it] only defines where an entity is located and does not mean that this location is a legal seat where specific juridical acts can be performed."[1] References[edit]^ a b c Decision T 1012/03 of December 1, 2006 of the Boards of Appeal of the European Patent Office, Reasons 27.This legal term article is a stub

Passport
A passport is a travel document, usually issued by a country's government, that certifies the identity and nationality of its holder primarily for the purpose of international travel.[1] Standard passports may contain information such as the holder's name, place and date of birth, photograph, signature, and other identifying information. Many countries are moving towards including biometric information in a microchip embedded in the passport, making them machine-readable and difficult to counterfeit.[1] As of 2017[update], there are over 120 jurisdictions issuing these e-Passports.[2] Previously issued passports usually remain valid until each expires. A passport holder is normally entitled to enter the country that issued the passport, though some people entitled to a passport may not be full citizens with right of abode. A passport does not of itself create any rights in the country being visited or obligate the issue country in any way, such as providing consular assistance
