The new Italian Electronic Passport is a new generation document, compliant with the standard ICAO doc.9303 and with the Council Regulation (CE)No2252/2004 dated 13 Dec 2004 on standards for security features and biometrics for travel documents. The innovative technology inserted in all the five types of Passport issued in Italy sets our country in a foremost position in Europe and in the world.
The introduction of a chip module containing biometric data is a considerable improvement against counterfeiting, while allowing easier border controls. The documents can be inspected by an automatic reader that operates a cross-match check between the personal data of the holder printed on the page and the microchip data content.
In the new Italian Electronic Passport a microchip RFID compliant with the ISO 14443 standard is inserted in the back cover page; in the chip are recorded personal data and digital photo of the Passport holder.
The chip presence is indicated by the gold logo printed on the front cover in order to distinguish this type of document from the older issues. Buy Italian passport online from us now.
