Hong Kong have now adopted biometric passports. These new passports not only the incorporate new biometric standards but have new added security features Biometric chips encode information and personal details about the passport holder. Biometric information is taken from the supplied passport photo at the time of issue and contains the measurements such as the distance between the eyes, the distance between the ears etc.
