Here it is, your passport to Scientology godhood: Next stop, infinity!

Sunny Pereira has come through with a great treat for us today. It’s her Scientology “passport,” and we have it complete for you.

A Scientology passport? Yeah, we weren’t familiar with it either. But we’re sure glad Sunny managed to save hers. We asked her to help us understand what it was.

The Bunker: So you went Clear in 1990, and this was issued in 1994. How long did you continue to get it stamped?

Sunny: It’s complete up to 2004, when I left.


The Bunker: Looking at it now, what are your feelings about it?

Sunny: I don’t think it was common for too many people to keep them updated, because when I was at Flag they didn’t have the stamps handy and had to dig them up. Seemed like the orgs were unfamiliar with them for the most part.

The Bunker: Interesting. An idea that didn’t last long.

Sunny: No, it didn’t seem like many kept them updated. Not sure why I always did. It has stamps from CC, ASHO and Flag. At the time they were issued, I guess it made sense to have everything validated in one place. The logic of passing it through lifetimes escaped all of us, I think. It’s pretty clear it’s for many lifetimes with some of those quotes. It also lists things that haven’t been released, like some of the films. It goes up to OT XV, which I’ve never noticed before.

The Bunker: This is cute: “This passport may be renewed by the bearer for an unlimited number of lifetimes, by claiming a new passport with a new name each lifetime.”

Sunny: The last page talks about it being valid for the duration of the universe. My stamps don’t really matter. It’s the passport itself that’s the story. And as you can tell, I studied a lot of Scientology.

The Bunker: It’s a fun relic of Scientology at its height — 1994, just after getting tax exempt status. Yes, the TIME magazine article of 1991 had already come out, but in general the press was cowed. Scientology celebrities were doing well. It seemed like Scientology was on a roll.

Sunny: Yes. CC Int had just made Saint Hill size too.

The Bunker: Readers will probably be fascinated by it.

Sunny: Even though they may not be used often, I’m fairly certain they are still available and can get stamped and updated. It does say right in it that it doesn’t expire. If someone really wanted one, pretty sure orgs could provide one.



Gosh, that’s fun. We might need to bug Observer about coming up with an Underground Bunker passport. How many of our courses have you completed!
