Haven’t passed the apparition test yet? Have no fear – muggle transportation can be very accommodating and comfortable. Plus, the chance of vomiting after your journey is extremely low in comparison to most magical forms of transportation.
On your journey, you will obviously need to bring many non-magical items to aid your travel.
However, you may want to subtly indicate your enchanting abilities to other “undercover” members of the magical community. Just in case they happen to hex your airplane or ward off a dementor from your train car.
For that reason, I recommend purchasing a few wizarding world themed items for your travels. If you’re specifically looking for a passport holder then you’re in the right spot!
If you’re looking for other magical items or a comprehensive magical travel items list, see my 25 recommendations here.
I’ve searched the both the wizarding and muggle worlds to find the 22 most interesting, sturdy, and creative passport covers out there. This list is a summary of my top recommendations – no trip to Diagon Alley needed!
How to Use Your Harry Potter Passport Cover
There are a few general ways to use a Harry Potter themed passport cover. You will either use if for standard travel between countries that require passport documentation, or as a transporter & protector of your items at Universal Studios Harry Potter themed attractions.
Harry Potter Attractions at Universal Studios
Universal Orlando – The Hogwarts Express travels between Universal Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida. In order to ride it, you have to purchase a 2-park ticket and carry it with you throughout the day. Putting your ticket in a snazzy passport cover is a fantastic way to keep track of your ticket in magical style.
Universal Hollywood – The Hogwarts Express attraction is a photo opportunity, not a ride. No ticket is needed, however you can still keep your park ticket in a passport holder.
Standard Use (International Travel)
All of the passport covers included in this review, are designed for standard sized passports. You should be able to insert your passport into the cover and use it for domestic and international travel.
“Best Of” Passport Holders List
This “Best Of” list is based on my personal experimentation with Harry Potter themed passport covers. Subsequent sections of this post include designs and styles that I haven’t personally tried. They are included in this post because they contain interesting design and aesthetic elements that are worth checking out.
Best Customizable Passport Cover: Hogwarts Student (Customize name, hair and house)
Product Performance: I love all of the customizations on this product – there are tons of hair designs & colors, font styles, and skin types. Plus you can select robe colors that best reflect your house! The quality was much higher than I expected and the seller responds quickly to requests for alterations.
Best Platform 9 3/4 Passport Cover: Red Embossed Leather
Product Performance: Great quality passport holder with a handy credit card compartment on the interior.
The company is based in the UK so shipping can take longer for US domestic customers.
Best Quidditch Passport Cover: Quidditch Team Captain
Product Performance: The detail on this passport cover is amazing. It looks professional and polished while embracing the magic of the Wizarding World.
Since each cover is made to order, processing and shipping are a bit longer than standard online stores. It took a little over 3 weeks to get my order.
Best Deathly Hallows Passport Cover: Artistic Deathly Hollows Icon
Product Performance: This passport cover just feels quality. I love the half stitching on the outside edge and the option to customize the interior (there are seven interior options!).
The creator is fantastic to communicate with and willing to make small adjustments to the design.
Best Vaccination Protector Case: I Solemnly Swear That I Have Been Vaccinated
Product Performance: Although this isn’t a passport holder, I’ve included it on this list because it is the cutest vaccination card holder I’ve ever seen! I just had to get it and I’m so glad I did because I love it.
Ask me if I’m vaccinated… just ask me!

Rep Your House
The Hogwarts houses are a big part of the Harry Potter series and are a fun way for fans to identify with a particular group of wizards.
The four houses are Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff. Gryffindors are known for their bravery and loyalty, Slytherins are cunning and resourceful, Ravenclaws are intelligent and curious, and Hufflepuffs are kind and hardworking. Each house has its own unique qualities and strengths, and it’s always fun to see which one you are sorted into when you visit the Wizarding World website.
Even if you don’t fit perfectly into one house, it’s okay to embrace your own unique traits and be proud of who you are. At the end of the day, we are all just a bunch of magic-loving, wizarding enthusiasts!

These four characters, along with their friends and allies, embark on exciting and dangerous adventures together, and their bond is unbreakable. They may have their differences, but they always come together in the end to fight for what is right and to protect those they love.
