Ibn Battuta of Tangier

There are 3 great land travellers from ancient times. One of them is Ibn Battuta of Tangier.

He started from there in 1325 and only returned 29 years later. He travelled 3 times the distance Marco Polo covered. He travelled only through the Muslim nations. Those were the days when a passport was not needed. His travels were only possible because he was provided free lodgings and food by Muslim Kings and nobles.

Tim retraced his route in 3 books. The first is Travels with a Tangerine. The 2nd is The Hall of a Thousand Columns. The last is Landfalls.

NAME the 3rd prolific land traveller. When was a passport required to enter a foreign country first implemented?
