Within Auresia, there are a range of immigration and travel laws and standards which govern and regulate them within the Empire's borders.

Contents

Overview

The purpose of the laws covering travel and immigration is to regulate according to specific standards and requirements for the purpose of protecting the Empire, its borders, its commerce, and its citizens. These laws are formally inculcated in Part 16-H of Title 16 of the Imperial Book of Codes. Review of all relevant travel and immigration documents and papers, as well as ensuring the applications for same are legitimate and proper and that bearers are in compliance with relevant regulations and laws, is the responsibility of the Home Office, coordinating with the Imperial Customs & Excise Administration for foreign nationals.

Emigration

Imperial citizens may, if they wish, emigrate to foreign states for the purposes of tourism, work, or any other relevant matter, as long as they take all necessary steps to respect and follow local laws. Any Auresian citizen or civilian who does so must travel back to the Empire at least once a year in order to keep their citizenship open. This verification is acquired by having an entry and exit stamp in their passport, which is forwarded in a report to the Home Office. Should an Auresian move abroad and remain so without returning to the Empire proper for five years has their citizenship terminated automatically. After this, they are required to travel to the nearest Imperial colonial legation, consulate, or embassy and submit the necessary form to properly reactivate their citizenship status.

Any Auresian nationals who may find themselves in a nation that nation enters a state of war against the Empire cannot at any time during an active state of hostilities attempt re-entry into the Empire. Should they do so, they will be detained until such time as hostilities have ceased, upon which their case and situation will be assessed by the Home Office.

Immigration

Immigration to the Empire for the purpose of permanent residency by foreign nationals for any reason is not permitted. Temporary immigration for the purposes of education is permitted, as is traveling into the Empire for the purpose of short-term, part-time work (not to exceed twenty hours per week for a period no longer than one full year). By Imperial law, a limited number of foreign nationals are permitted into the Empire annually for the purposes of either work or study.

Travel

All Auresian citizens who have the means to do so can travel abroad at their leisure, simply showing their passport and identification card prior to exit and re-entry to the Empire. This is done at any Border Force watchpoint at their chosen departure or re-entry point. Likewise, foreign nationals can travel into the Empire for leisure purposes. Anyone who enters the Empire from abroad and later is found to have overstayed their visit can be expelled from Auresian territory without prejudice and barred from re-entry.

Relevant Documents

Identification Card

All Auresian citizens, upon reaching the age of 16, are required to obtain an identification card - carta d'identità - which they will carry with them within their wallet. The card, which measures 105mm (4.13 in) × 74 mm (2.91 in), contains the person's surname, given name, date of birth, municipality and prefecture of birth, date of birth, and citizen number. On the back, the card will be updated with the bearer's driving certification(s) when acquired. It is printed on standard white stock. When traveling abroad or returning from a trip abroad, every citizen is required to present their identification card and passport to Border Force inspectors.

All Auresian citizens are required to carry with them their official passport at all times when traveling abroad. They are likewise required to present this document on demand when entering or leaving the Empire. The passport is a small booklet, measuring 125 mm (4.92 in) by 88 mm (3.4 in).
