The PASSPORT is an official document issued by a government, certifying the
holder's identity and citizenship and entitling them to travel under its
protection to and from foreign countries and recognised as a travel document
by the Government of Malaysia.
Malaysia was the first country
in the world to issue Biometric
Passports in 1998, after a local company, IRIS Corporation, developed
the technology. Malaysia is however not a member of the Visa Waiver Program
(VWP) and its biometric passport does not conform to the same standards as
the VWP biometric document because the Malaysian biometric passport was
issued ahead of the VWP requirement.
Implementation of the ICAO e-passport version is essential to enhance the
security features, operational efficiency and effectiveness of the
e-passport system as a whole. It ensures smooth
mobility of Malaysian citizens at international entry points. Documents that
have ‘interoperability' confirm the authenticity or validity of the passport
holder’s information. Travellers can enjoy the convenience of the e-service
and automated inspection door (auto gate) prepared by the ICAO member
countries around the world.
Also the biometric passport was
designed to be read only if the receiving country has the authorization from
the Malaysian Immigration Department. Malaysia started issuing ICAO
compliant passports from February 2010.
