e-Passport Required When Traveling to the United States

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

Beginning April 1, 2016, travelers from numerous countries that participate in the “Visa Waiver Program” must use e-Passport in order to enter the United States.

An e-Passport contains an electronic chip. 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 United States requires that the chip contain a digital photograph of the holder. All e-Passports issued by Visa Waiver Program (VWP) countries and the United States have security features to prevent the unauthorized reading or “skimming” of data stored on the e-Passport chip.
