Biometric Passport

A biometric passport, also known as an electronic passport or e-passport, is a travel document that contains an electronic chip embedded with biometric information of the passport holder. It is a highly secure and tamper-proof identification document that is used for international travel.

The electronic chip in the biometric passport holds essential information about the passport holder, including their facial image, fingerprints, and other personal details. These biometric features are digitally encrypted and stored in the chip, allowing automated authentication and verification at immigration checkpoints. The primary purpose of the biometric passport is to enhance the security and integrity of the travel document, making it difficult for counterfeiters to reproduce or tamper with the passport. Additionally, the use of biometric technology ensures a faster and smoother immigration process as it eliminates the need for manual verification and reduces the chances of identity theft. Biometric passports are now widely adopted by many countries as a more advanced and secure alternative to traditional paper passports.
