An e-passport, or commonly known as a biometric passport, is a regular passport booklet containing an electronic chip on the cover. The chip includes the passport bearer’s information used to authenticate the passport holder’s identity and provides an extra layer of security against passport fraud.
In fact, many countries are moving towards the issue of biometric passports. As of 2020, over 150 nations were issuing e-passports.
