A nine-year-old girl managed to pass through Turkish customs officers with a passport identifying her as a ‘unicorn’.

Emily Harris’ parents were stunned after officials stamped the ID their daughter had made especially for her pink toy unicorn Lily, the Daily Express reported.

When the family passed through customs at Antalya airport to start their one-week holiday, mum Nicky accidentally handed over the wrong passport at a control stand.

Nicky, 43, from Cwmbran, South Wales, told the publication that she didn’t realise until she was putting the passports away.

The passport is not only  different in size and shape to the official document, but it also has gold teddy bears on the front!

Nicky realised that instead of handing in daughter’s passport, she had shown Emily’s Bear Factory passport for a Unicorn toy called Lily Harris after they got outside.

The mother said that it’s a worry to any parent, how easy it would be to smuggle a child through customs and into another country.
