HID Global’s complete electronic passport solution meets the highest security demands of border control while ensuring a smoother travel experience for the public.

Customer

With a population of over 55 million, the country of Tanzania shares borders with eight neighboring African states.

Challenge

As part of a transformative e-immigration program, the government of Tanzania wanted to modernize its passports to improve the traveling experience for its citizens and to prevent the use of counterfeit passports. 

Solution

Tanzania’s government selected a complete electronic passport solution from HID Global.

The new e-passport makes travel easier for the country’s citizens, such as simply scanning their passports electronically at border control stations upon entry and exit. The e-passport conforms to all international standards as set out by the International Civil Aviation Organization, ensuring that its features can be used by Tanzanians as they travel around the world. 

A notable benefit is that an e-passport holder can be issued with an emergency passport on their smartphone if their passport is stolen or lost. This convenient solution is enabled using HID’s award-winning Seos technology for mobile citizen IDs, called HID goID.

The new Tanzania e-passport contains a contactless chip embedded in its polycarbonate data page, which is proven as tamper-proof.  

HID Global has established a lasting relationship with the government of Tanzania to ensure the highest levels of security for many years to come.
