ELECTRONIC PASSPORT STATEMENT
The U.S. Department of State now issues an "Electronic Passport" book, which contains an embedded electronic chip. 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.
