The Foreign Affairs Department of Australia will soon consider implementing the cloud-based passports. This idea will see the biometric and biographic information of the citizens to be stored online and which will allow the tourists to shun the physical passports
The idea will be the product of an innovated contest organized by Julie Bishop, Minister for Foreign Affairs and acquaintances.
In addition to provide convenience to the travelers, this program would also be affordable for them. It is also imagined as the matter of security. The previous years have witnessed around 40,000 yearly stolen, or misplaced passports reports from the citizens of Australia.
DFAT is presently negotiating with the neighboring country New Zealand for a trial of the idea. And the officials also believe that this can catch the attention internationally. But there remain few reasons for uncertainty. The implementation of the only digital passport will need substantial cooperation from other nations as well.
Meanwhile, many countries have started to embrace the e-passports, and it can be dispute that transitioning to the documents which would be cloud based is the next rational step. Such system is only commencement to take shape as both the nations carry on their revolutionary efforts.
