The test is if one were to apply for a U.S. visitor's visa at any US consulate with such a passport, will the consulate issue a visa to him/her? The answer, am afraid, is a resolute "no", since such a "nationality" does not, and has never existed.

    Any such "passport" will be devoid of any validity at pretty much any immigration checkpoint you present it to.

    The foregoing is for general information purposes and does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
