E-Passports- Everything you need to know

The Union Budget 2022 contains many useful features in it. One among the many is the introduction of e-passports. E-passports are radio frequency identification and biometrics-enabled passports to ease the identity verification process. As the e-passports will have biometric data, just like Aadhar cards, they will have much-enhanced identity verification. In the following article, we will get to know everything about e-passports.

What is an E-Passport?

An e-passport is a digital version of the old-school passport and serves the same functions as any traditional passport does. The e-passport has a built-in electronic microchip and contains all the relevant details about the applicant.

Benefits of E-Passport

  • The most beneficial part of the e-passport is that as the passport is electronic, the passengers need not stand in long queues for verification. One swipe and the passport verification is done. This will save a great deal of time and effort.
  • As the E-passport contains biometric data of the people, it would reduce the possibility of fraud and duplicity to a great extent.
  • Even if there is some mishandling with the passport, the chip authentication will fail to respond.
  • As the passport will be a digital one, the data mentioned on it can't be erased or tampered with.
