Govt To Launch e-Passport With Enhanced Security Features

In an interview with The Chronicle, Home Affairs and Culture Minister Obert Mpofu said it will soon launch an incorruptible e-passport with enhanced security features.

An e-passport is a travel document with an individual’s biometric features. In 2016, Government launched the state of the art e-passport production equipment which will result in the Registrar General’s Office producing over 16 000 passports a day. Said Mpofu:

Our passports are special passports especially now that we are going to embark on an e-passport. It will be quite a development which will make our passports internationally recognised because of its features that cannot be compromised by whatever means. We had incidents where our passports were forged. But the e-passport will be internationally recognised because it will have incorruptible features.

The launch of the e-passport is also expected to address challenges which had seen the Registrar General’s Office delaying to release passports.
