New technology for Argentine passports

As of April, the passports have a technological modification that improves the electronic provision of the document. This is the implementation of a copper wire antenna that, together with a chip, allows the storage of biometric and biographical data of each citizen. This modification will be for new passports and does not imply that renewal is mandatory.

The director of the RENAPER, Juan José D'Amico, said that the "decision is part of the task of optimizing the State's resources while maintaining safety and quality, so that the Argentine passport remains one of the safest in the world."

As reported by the Ministry of the Interior, the savings that will occur from this incorporation will be reflected in the acquisition of state-of-the-art equipment so that Argentina can continue adapting to the recommendations established by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) for documents Travel.
