Egypt - Apply for Biometric Passport
An ePassport is also known as a biometric passport. It looks like a traditional passport book, but it contains an electronic chip that is encoded with the same information. The chip holds the same information that is printed on the passport's data page: the holder's name, date of birth, and other biographic information. An e-Passport also contains a biometric identifier. The Egyptian Government requires that the chip contain a digital photograph of the holder. All e-Passports issued by Visa Migration department in different countries and the United States have security features to prevent the unauthorized reading or "skimming" of data stored on the e-Passport chip.
All Egyptian by birth, naturalization and registration are eligible to apply for a Biometric- passport
