Jura and Svenska Pass partner on Swedish project


Hungarian secure identity solutions firm Jura, the reputed inventor and supplier of graphic-arts-based security features to protect photo-carrying travel documents, has announced that the technology partnership with Thales subsidiary Svenska Pass will continue.

Thales announced in September that Svenska Pass had been awarded a multi-year contract to continue the production and personalisation of the Swedish passport.

The technology provided by Jura allows to see hidden personalised information on the first paper-page of the passport through a special filter that is incorporated to the polycarbonate data-page.

This revolutionary technology was introduced in 2011 in the previous Swedish passport.

Jura security features are also used in nine other national passport programmes, proof of the successful partnership between Jura and Thales.

Jura said it hopes that two further countries will be added soon. In addition to cooperation in document personalisation, all Thales document design facilities use Jura’s high-security design software package.
