I've got a passport from country A, obtained in country B. The "issuing authority" field in the passport says "consul in (City in country B)". I know the passport was produced in A and shipped to B before I got it.
What's the right answer for the question about the "issuing country"? This is often asked when booking international flights.
I always filled in country B and never got any issues or questions, but recently started wondering if that's expected/correct.
