|New mandatory passport law?|

I hear there is a new law that it is mandatory that everyone has a passport. When did this law get passed?
On trying to open a bank account a young man was told by no less than two banks that if he didn’t have a passport they wouldn’t open an account for him.
Shouldn’t that be two government issued IDs? After all, not everyone chooses to get a passport. Some people don’t choose to travel out of their country.
Now let’s see ... a birth certificate, NIB card, driver’s license and, oh yes, a voter’s card. That’s four that I can think of, two of which have photographs.
Can the banks let us know when this law was passed?
