An e-passport is an embedded microchip that stored information about its holder. This chip is a combined electronic and paper identity document that utilizes biometrics for authenticating the citizenship of travelers. An e-passport’s vital information is stored on the microchip, which is there on a regular passport, such as individual’s name, date of birth, and biographic information. E-passports are designed to enhance security, thus making it difficult to alter data present on a passport. This, in turn, aids in limiting the chances of fraud. In addition, all e-passports issued by the U.S. and Visa Waiver Program countries come with security features for preventing unauthorized reading or accessing of data stored on an e-passport’s chip.
