Every five years a new passport - UK


Each solves sexist side of the passport but is it really most important at the new passport?
Let's have a look closer at some security features.

The new passport was launched on 3 of November and should be issued from December 2015. Standard passport will be issued with 34 pages and claret cover, this passport uses the latest and most secure printing and design techniques including security printing, inks, watermarks and holograms.

Very interesting and never seen before is a continuous personal details page. It is located on page 2 of the passport and continues across the spine of the book to the back cover page. This is intended to hinder the removal of the personal details page from the passport. Embedded into continuous personal details page is SkyLight(TM) feature. It is in form of thin transparent circles intended to prevent alteration of variable data.


Across the passport is applied quantity of micro letters but worth noting is a secondary image of passport holder constructed from the letters and numbers that make up the passport holder's surname and date of birth visible under magnification.

Embedded security fibers appear on every page in red and blue colour but when exposed to UV light they fluoresce in different colours. Each visa page has embedded a 3D watermark of William Shakespeare and 2D writer's scroll, a quill, and page number. The personal details page contains a different watermark as you can see on the picture. It is a boat and 4 floral motifs.

“This is the most secure passport we have ever produced. It is the best we can do at this time and we think it is pretty damn good,” said Mark Thomson, director general of the Passport Office.
