Qu’est-ce qu’un passeport biométrique ?

Biometric and non-biometric French passports


Le passeport biométrique français Biometric passport: since the end of June 2009, all passports issued in France have been biometric passports. These passports are equipped with a component that contains the data relating to civil status and the identity photo in digital format, as well as 2 finger prints. When the passport is requested, 8 fingers are fingerprinted, even though only the 2 most useful prints will be kept.
Le passeport électronique français Non-biometric passport: these are all of the passports issued before June 2009, which may or may not have an electronic component and that do not contain the finger prints of the holder.
