ePassport and Border Control for the Maldives

Maldives Citizen Screening System

DERMALOG supplied the new biometric passports and IT system for registration and personalization of electronic passports to the Republic of Maldives as well as a new border control system, including automatic gates and a high-speed AFIS (Automatic Fingerprint Identification System) to Maldives Immigration.

The Maldives is the first country in the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) to introduce such a modern biometric passport- and border control system. 

Its ePassport contains a highly secured polycarbonate data page with laser engraved photo and data. Each visa page of the passport has a different design, with numerous illustrations by Maldivan local artist Hussain Ali Manik.

The new biometric DERMALOG Gates automatically verify passports and boarding cards as well as fingerprint and facial biometrics. This accelerates the border control process and provides more convenience to the Maldives' citizens while maintaining highest security levels.
