WATCH and LOOK: THE NEW E-PASSPORT, OLD PASSPORT UNTIL OCTOBER 2015


Via Jobstreet: "All Philippine passports are now integrated with chips that contain the data of the holder. These new passports are called ePassports. The ePassport is a global standard in travel documents, and as a member of International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the Philippines is required to adhere to their standards.

The chip embedded in the ePassport contains data essential in verifying the identity of the passport holder. It contains data on the personal information found on the data page of the passport, the biometrics of the passport holder, the unique chip identification number and a digital signature to verify the authenticity of the data stored on the chip. This technology allows the information stored in an ePassport to be read by special chip readers at a close distance, such as the scanners used in immigration counters."
