A TikTok user has come up with some hilarious ways to make use of her passport as it gathers dust amid ongoing international travel restrictions.
The Australian woman, known as Zyneb, shared a video of alternative uses for the little blue book — all from the comfort of home.
In the clip, titled ‘Things You Can Do With Your Australian Passport’, she demonstrated how the travel permit is ideal for a range of tasks, including as a mug coaster or a fan.
The social media influencer suggested placing the document under the leg of a wobbly table to adjust the height – or as a sponge to wash car windows.

The images have gone viral, quickly eliciting more than 31,000 comments, with many calling the use “hilarious.”
‘As an Australian I can relate to this,’ one wrote.
“This is hilarious,” added another.
But some were not impressed.
“You have to respect that thing,” one person said.
“I think you should appreciate being a citizen of Australia and being in a very safe country,” added another.
“Please respect our weapon,” someone else shouted.

But most saw the lighter side of the stunt and jumped in Zyneb’s defense to point out that it was clearly a joke.
“She’s obviously joking because we can’t go anywhere anytime soon,” one person wrote.
“I’m an Aussie who is thankful we are Covid free and I can even see the joke. Light up!’ said another.
The Australian government announced last month that international borders will remain closed to the majority of the world until mid-2022.
But it was announced on Thursday that Prime Minister Scott Morrison will hold talks with other leaders to discuss extending the Australian travel bubble – which opened with New Zealand in March – to Singapore.
Another cheeky suggestion was to put the travel pass to work, polish dirty car windows
