Veridos and GSI Sertracen provide Costa Rica with ePassport solution

Veridos, a provider of integrated identity solutions and the Latin American systems integrator GSI Sertracen have announced the signing of a major contract with Costa Rica.

The General Department of Migration and Immigration of the Republic of Costa Rica has entrusted Veridos and GSI Sertracen with the supply, installation, and implementation of next-generation electronic passports and the personalisation system. Veridos will also supply its CLIP ID solution for outstanding colour image performance.

The contract between the Costa Rican government and Veridos along with GSI Sertracen will allow the country to elevate its ID technology thanks to the delivery of ePassports with a polycarbonate data page as well as the software and hardware for personalisation.

The ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) compliant passports include Veridos’ CLIP ID high-tech colour personalisation technology to ensure the ultimate colour brilliance of each ePassport holder’s image, improving visual verification. CLIP ID creates vibrant colour photos using the advantages of both laser engraving and ink-jet printing.

Marc-Julian Siewert, CEO of Veridos, said: “We are very honoured to have been chosen by the General Department of Migration and Immigration to be part of the modernisation of their ID landscape. Together with GSI Sertracen, we will successfully transform the current machine-readable passport system to a fully-fledged biometric travel document solution.

“Costa Rica is one of the most advanced countries in Latin America and their passports with our cutting-edge CLIP ID color picture solution will soon reflect that, too.”​
