Czech passports with Fingerprints
New Czech passports including fingerprints will start to be issued as of April, 2009.

Presented at:

Prague: New Czech passports including fingerprints will start to be issued as of April, 2009 and not as of this May, as was planned originally, under a government bill postponing the date that the Chamber of Deputies passed today.

The bill will now be debated by the Senate and then will be sent to the president for signature. Under the bill, Czechs will be able to travel to European Union countries with an ID that does not include machine-readable data. It also stipulates that passports with machine-readable data and biometric elements will also be issued for children under five.

The current Czech law does not allow this, but Canada, for instance, demands such type of passport for children under five within the agreement on visa-free relations.

The reason for the postponement of the issue of new passports are problems on the European Union side, the government said.

Interior Minister Ivan Langer (senior ruling Civic Democrats, ODS) explained that the European Commission had delayed the approval of the technical specifications for the improvement of security mechanisms connected with the issue of the new type of passports. The security measures are to ensure the protection of fingerprints and access to them.
