The BioCap and Visalon system has been customised for use by Argentinean government agencies. It collects general and biographical data and biometric information such as photos, fingerprints and signatures as well as archiving supporting documents that are linked to the specific application
It will be integrated with the country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ data exchange system for secure online data exchange via encrypted communication channels.
The technology will be fully operational at all Argentinean embassies and consulates worldwide at the beginning of the fourth quarter of this year.
