The first batch of identification documents will be handed over to the Civil Status & Passport Department of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan before the end of this year. All components of the machine-readable passports are provided by Veridos.
Security measures incorporated into the printing mean that the Jordan passports are highly resistant to forgery. For instance, a Printed and Embossed Anti-Copy Key (PEAK©) – a combination of intaglio and offset printing – is being included. When the Peak© area is viewed from different angles, the variable text “HKJ” becomes visible. The Peak© feature can easily be verified by tilting the passport and observing how the light/dark effects react at different viewing angles.
