Art is fanaticism that demands diplomacy.
Anybody can become an NSK Passport holder and acquire the status of an NSK citizen. The NSK state denies in its fundamental acts the categories of (limited) territory, the principle of national borders, and advocates the law of transnationality.
The bearer of the NSK passport becomes a citizen of NSK. Vital statistics of the bearer are logged in the NSK citizenship register.
The passport is numbered and untransferable; its validity is limited and renwable. By signing the adjoining statement the bearer pledges to participate on a best-effort basis to support the integrity of the NSK state. This passport may not be misused for criminal, ideological, religious or political purposes conflicting with the contents of NSK and/or jeopardizing the reputation and good name of NSK. Citizenship ceases with the expiriation, return or confiscation of the passport.
The passport is a document of a subversive nature and unique value. A holder fills in data and collects in it stamps, signatures, etc., at NSK events and similar campaigns. In this sense, the applicability of the passport is unlimited and subject to the responsibility of its holder.
Dark green passport bound in hard cover and made in accordance with European standards.
Size: 12.5 x 8.9 cm, 32 numbered pages.

Citizenship does not imply NSK membership.
The NSK State was founded in 1992 by members of the Neue Slowenische Kunst informal organisation.
The NSK State holds the status of a virtual state without physical territory, and does not exist in the real, three-dimensional space. Its sole territory is time.
Owning the NSK State passport does not grant citizenship of the Republic of Slovenia or any other country or the world within coordinates of physical territory.
The NSK State passport does not facilitate legal passing of concrete international borders.
