444.hu reported that Carrie Fisher’s passport is being sold on E-bay. What does it have to do with Hungary?
As 444.hu wrote, Star Wars’ Princess Leia’s passport, which was valid between 1983 and 1993, is being sold on eBay. Collecting passports from celebrities is an appreciated hobby in the western world, so the current bid is more likely to rise. It stands at about $710.
The passport proves that the actress travelled a lot. She was in London, Nepal, Hong Kong, India, Africa, Australia, even in Hungary.
But what could Carrie Fisher do in Hungary? It does not turn out why she came to Hungary, but she could have been given her visa around the time of the end of Communism in Hungary, because the stamp of the Hungarian People’s Republic can be found on one of the pages. However, her visa was valid only until July 1990. (The Hungarian People’s Republic was abolished on 23 October 1989.) She entered the country from the direction of Czecho-Slovakia (which became separated into Slovakia and the Czech Republic in 1993). The visa was not cheap: it was 1600 forints, which equalled to 30 dollars at that time.
We will never know why Carrie Fisher came to Hungary.

Carrie was probably mesmerized by her dad’s Russian-Jewish heritage and the industries roots in Hollywood that included many from Hungary that would have included friends and relatives, so she went to see parts of Europe they originated from.
Carrie had a short marriage earlier to Paul Simon of Hungarian parents too.
