Pangea IT, which specializes in the digital transformation of government, public and business services, has won the Andorran government’s international tender to design the country’s new passport system and deliver a complete system for issuing e-Passports for the residents of the European country.
Pangea will provide a system that meets all standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). The project involves providing systems for registering passport applications that include demographic and biometric information, planning and implementing verification processes and data encryption, alongside with designing, producing, and printing the new e-Passports. The passport holder’s personal information will be encoded in the passport’s chip and the document will implement the most advanced security features in the industry. The new e-Passport system is scheduled to be deployed by end of 2022 and will be implemented in cooperation with the Austrian company OSD.
Over the past two decades, Pangea has worked with numerous governments to supply digital solutions and establish digital population registries, allowing them to provide, for the first time, identity cards, birth and death certificates, passports, visas, driver licenses and other documents. The new document’s holders include tens of millions of unregistered residents who previously did not enjoy government services, nor even paid taxes. Among other achievements, Pangea has recently won a Jamaican government tender to update the country’s voter registry system.
Uzy Rozenthal, Senior Vice President, and Government Department General Manager at Pangea: “Winning the e-Passport project in Andorra is part of Pangea’s general momentum in the digitization of government services. Pangea’s selection attests to our ability to plan and integrate complex technological and logistical processes relating to sensitive documents like e-passports. Pangea is committed to developing and leveraging its capabilities in the digitization of government services for the benefit of countries around the world.”
