Biometric passport: how to make?

The idea to create a biometric passport belongs to the United States of America. When in 2001 the towers of the World Trade Center in New York were blown up, the Senate decided to tighten control over the movement of citizens and minimize the risks associated with forgery of documents. So there were passports with electronic media.

How does a biometric passport differ from the usual?

A biometric passport looks like a normal one, with the only difference being that on one of its pages there is an electronic carrier on which biometric data is recorded. These include a digitized image of a person, his signature, fingerprints, DNA, a picture of the iris of the eye - in short, everything that helps to identify the identity of the owner of the document.

Content of a biometric passport

The decision on which data is to be entered in the identity card is compulsory for each country individually. Russian and Ukrainian lawmakers have so far limited the information entered in biometric passports to the following points.

 

Russia Ukraine
The name and surname of the passport holder, gender, nationality, date of birth, registration number of the entry in the Register and passport number, date of issue and expiration, place of birth, code of the institution that issued the biometric passport, digitized photo of the citizen and signature.
Fingerprints  

 

In addition to the above data, upon your request, additional information may be added to the passport. It is unlikely that you voluntarily want to replenish the international database with your own prints or a retinal snapshot, but where to go if you need to go to a country where the availability of such data is a prerequisite for entry.

 

So far, biometric passports in both Ukraine and Russia are used only as an identity document when traveling abroad.

What is included in the biometric passport

For Ukraine, the issuance of documents of this format was one of the requirements of the European Union, which promised to introduce a visa-free regime in response. Russia began to provide its citizens with electronic documents, realizing that the old-style passports significantly limit the ability to travel around the world.

 

But both those and others are aware of the main thing - it has become much easier to track the location of a person with such a document.

 

From January 1, 2016, Ukraine will begin issuing biometric passports for internal use, but the Law does not oblige the mandatory exchange of old-fashioned passports for new ones. If your plans do not mean traveling abroad, you can continue to use your usual passport.

Advantages of a biometric passport

What are the advantages of a biometric passport?

 

  1. Reduced customs clearance time. An electronic reader instantly downloads information from the chip, saving you time. Some airports even have separate terminals for holders of passports with electronic data carriers, and the queue there moves much faster.
  2. Excluded the possibility of abuse by border guards.International passport
  3. The probability of a fake is practically reduced to zero. The attackers will not be able to use the stolen document as a fake ID.
  4. The validity period is 10 years, with a regular overseas one - only 5 (Russians are less fortunate - both types are given out for only 5 years).
  5. With the introduction of a visa-free regime can be freely used for unimpeded movement in the Schengen countries.

Disadvantages of a biometric passport

When we are praised for the next innovation, we involuntarily begin to seek out the catch. He has new passports.

 

  1. Your every movement will be recorded. It is a bit like total surveillance.Fingerprint Passport 
  2. Obtaining a biometric passport will cost more than usual (we will write about prices just below).
  3. The built-in chip is very fragile; if you involuntarily bend or squeeze a booklet, the device can be easily damaged.
  4. The most interesting thing is that fraudsters can hack a chip and get full access to your data. It is unlikely that they will use them to your advantage. Let's say more: Internet users already even provide links to software, with the help of which passport electronic media are read.
  5. Crazy agiotage and long waiting lists. You can fight this either by putting it off for a year - another acquisition of the new product, or by entrusting the design to a law office.

How to get a biometric passport
