Since October 1, 2005 issued Swedish travel documents that meet the requirements of the EU regulation on the security and biometrics in passports. These passports and ID cards are equipped with a computer chip which stores the holder’s personal details and photo. At a border passport holder can be photographed and the photo compared to the photo in the chip. The aim is to ensure that the person in the passport photo and the person using the passport is the same person.
