14.08.06 Passport, please
Implementation of plastic documents will not only speed up Belarus’ entrance into the international document flow, but will also solve the “one entry service” problem, indicated Alexander Kurlypo, deputy minister of finance, while opening the presentation.
What is required for making the new document? Citizen’s passport data, a digital picture, two scanned fingerprints and signature will be submitted to nationality and migration offices equipped with new appliances. Afterwards this data will be handed to unified information center.
Visitors to presentation could observe manufacturing of a new sample ID card, demonstrated by Sergei Pliska, director of Republican unitary enterprise “Cryptotech”. First, the paper part is printed on a two-side printer. After thermal processing the paper and plastic parts are alloyed. Electronic chip, the “brain” of the card, is embedded into the document. Intellectual machines read information from the card and… from card holder’s face. At the presentation Sergei Pliska tried to “cross border” with deputy minister’s card but computer displayed: authentication failed.
To introduce the new passports, it is necessary to arrange a unified registry, the software for which is being developed in National Academy of science. Yet some components for biometrical passports will be purchased abroad.
According to experts, introduction of electronic documents is still more economic than that of paper ones. As for personal expenditures, a biometrical passport is expected to cost within Euro 5–7
