It's easy to overlook your passport due to how plain, boring and ugly they really are. Start by making your passport look fun so it stands out.

More importantly, it will protect your passport from any spills or damage that can happen. Even if just a little bit of liquid spills on your passport you could be denied, so better to be safe then sorry. True story. Happened to a friend of a friend of mine.
