An office of a bureaucratic organisation issues ”passports” (actually passe-partouts), a magic document that allows its carrier entrance wheresoever. (Places where the document is not considered valid, should they exist, are not worth visiting.)
Clients visiting the Office may apply for their own passe-partout. Applicants have to fill in a "selfie-quizz" (each of which is different) with personal information such as their previous incarnation, hair colour, and personality type, as well as drawing their self-portrait as they would like to see themselves.

An essay about the futility of travelling can be seen hanging on the wall behind the office.
