LONDON, September 24 -- The State of Qatar has chosen De La Rue Identity Systems to supply an integrated end-to-end ePassport solution, providing it with an International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) compliant biometric document which includes the latest high security features and is integrated into Qatar's existing eID scheme.

De La Rue has supplied Qatar's travel documents for over 15 years. De La Rue's latest integrated solution incorporates ePassport documents, MIDIS(TM) document issuing system and the recently launched SIPS(TM) 500e for automated ePassport personalisation. Used in conjunction with De La Rue's secure laminate MLIS(TM), SIPS(TM) 500e automatically both encodes the chips with the holder's personal and biometric data and personalises the physical document. Sophisticated tracking and audit control features ensure that the secure laminates and passports are recorded and tracked as the document moves through the system. This provides the reassurance that every passport issued is a unique document, properly assigned to the correct individual.

De La Rue produces passports for 35 countries including ePassports for Ireland, the Bahamas and Qatar, the Mexican passport, The New York State driving licence and national ID cards for Chile, Senegal and Sierra Leone.

De La Rue is the world's largest commercial security printer and papermaker, involved in the production of over 150 national currencies and a wide range of security documents such as passports, authentication labels and fiscal stamps. The Company is also pioneering new technologies worldwide in government identity solutions for national identification, driving licence and passport issuing schemes. Employing over 6,000 people across 31 countries, it is also a leading provider of cash handling equipment and software solutions to banks and retailers worldwide.|| StumbleUpon reddit Facebook Google Plus Tweet This Seed This on Newsvine
