Strait passage is a concept in Admiralty law which allows for a vessel to pass through a strait. Given the United Nations' extension of territorial waters to a maximum width of 12 miles, straits with width of less than 24 miles are entirely composed of territorial waters. Under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea however, innocent passage rules do not apply and ships both commercial and military are allowed passage as if they were traversing the high seas.
