The Department of State now issues a type of passport book containing an embedded electronic chip and called an "Electronic Passport". The
electronic passport book continues to be proof of the bearer's United States citizenship/nationality and identity, and looks and functions in the
same way as a passport without a chip. The addition of an electronic chip in the back cover enables the passport book to carry a duplicate
electronic copy of all information from the data page. The electronic passport book is usable at all ports-of-entry, including those that do not yet
have electronic chip readers.
Use of the electronic format provides the traveler the additional security protections inherent in chip technology. Moreover, when used at
ports-of-entry equipped with electronic chip readers, the electronic passport book provides for faster clearance through some of the port-of-entry
The electronic passport book does not require special handling or treatment, but like previous versions should be protected from extreme heat,
bending, and from immersion in water. The electronic chip must be read using specially formatted readers, which protects the data on the chip
from unauthorized reading.
The cover of the electronic passport book is printed with a special symbol representing the embedded chip. The symbol
will appear in
port-of-entry areas where the electronic passport book can be read.
You may use this application if you meet all of the provisions listed on Instruction Page 2, however you must CONSULT YOUR SPONSORING
