Madagascar began issuing a new tourist passport in late January 2007. Like the prior passport, the new passport has a maroon cover. but unlike prior passports is only valid for five years. The new passports include a digital photo and a ghost image of the photo, and a 2D barcode above the machine readable zone. The passport number and the book number are the same. Prior 10-year passports will be automatically invalidated on January 1, 2008, even though the expiration date may be as late as January 2017. Some, but not all, of these passports include an entry for the passport number ("Nomeraon'ny Pasipaoro") consisting of 14 numbers and letters. This number is not used by local authorities or the Embassy as the passport number. The real passport number, as reflected in the machine readable zone, is the book number, found burned into the passport pages, which starts with A followed by 8 numbers and letters. Press reports stated new diplomatic (black cover) and service (official, green cover) passports issued after January 2007 will include the same security features and format as the new tourist passports. However, these have not yet appeared in circulation. Currently, these passports are typed or occasionally handwritten, with slightly oversized pages and short validity periods, frequently extended by annotations in the passport.
