Biometric passport - a document giving citizens of Ukraine the right to cross the state border and stay in other countries. In fact, a biometric passport is a new example of a foreign passport already familiar to Ukrainian citizens.

What is the difference between a biometric passport of Ukraine and an old international passport? In fact, the new foreign passport is a traditional booklet on thirty-two pages, one plastic page with data. Only unlike old passports, a special chip will be mounted on the plastic page of the biometric passport, on which information about the passport holder and his photo will be recorded in electronic form. This will simplify the identification of the owner during customs clearance, as it is supposed to create a single base of all citizens who crossed the state border.

In turn, reading and storing data on citizens crossing the border of Ukraine and others in electronic form will significantly strengthen measures to combat international terrorism. The introduction of biometric passports gave an impetus to the events that occurred in the United States on September 11, 2001. And today, Ukraine, too, has joined this international standard.
