Giesecke & Devrient contracted to supply passports to Iraq

Screen shot 2013-10-13 at 20.43.18Giesecke & Devrient (G&D) has been contracted by the Republic of Iraq to produce and deliver the Iraqi passports for the next years. These passports will be machine-readable and meet the requirements laid down by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) for international travel.

The first batch of identification documents will be handed over to the Republic of Iraq’s Ministry of the Interior before the end of this year. The order also foresees the delivery of printers and printer accessories to personalize the passports.
All components of the machine-readable HIGHSEC passports are provided by G&D. Papierfabrik Louisenthal, a subsidiary of the Munich-based technology company, is contributing to the production of the 48-page identification documents by supplying the security paper complete with cylinder mold watermark.
Security measures incorporated into the printing mean that the Iraqi passports are highly resistant to forgery. The documents are printed in an offset and intaglio printing process and come with security features such as G&D’s Printed and Embossed Anti-Copy Key (PEAK). Fine lines in carefully selected shades are embossed to produce a three-dimensional, optically variable image. This shows different information and colors depending on the viewing angle.
