Biometric passports

Old non-biometric passport (issued until October 15, 2009)

One of the conditions for abolishment of visas of the Schengen states for citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina was the introduction of biometric passports (e-passport). Agency for Identification Documents, Registers and Data Exchange of Bosnia and Herzegovina (IDDEEA) and Ministry of Interior in Bosnia and Herzegovina tested the system of biometric passports from July 4 to October 15, 2009. No passport is issued until automated checks with the Ministry of Interior, Registrar's Offices and other security agencies in Bosnia and Herzegovina is performed. 162 institutions are involved in the process of issuing biometric passports, and therefore this makes the Bosnian e-passport one of the safest passports in the world. Originally it was announced that biometric passports would be tested until the end of 2009. On July 15, 2009, the Bosnian Minister of Civil Affairs announced that Bosnia and Herzegovina will begin issuing biometric passports on October 15, 2009, when a larger amount of passports will be delivered from German producer Bundesdruckerei. [2] From December 15, 2010 holders of Bosnian passport travel visa free through all Schengen states. In June 2014 IDDEEA announced that Bosnia and Herzegovina will introduce third generation of biometric passports (SAC) in October 2014.
