Passports, Documents




Since 1949, passports and other travel documents / booklets have been produced in Hungary exclusively at the Hungarian Banknote Printing Company.

All kinds of Hungarian passports are produced with an electronic storage element (chip), which contains personal data and biometric information – facial image and two finger prints – of the legal holder.

Hungarian passports are produced with a Hungarian-developed, hybrid datapage that combines all the protections – provided by polycarbonate films and unique watermarked security paper – against forging / counterfeiting. The datapage is personalized by laser engraving.

Hungarian travel documents with a validity period of up to one year do not contain chips. The datapage of these documents are security paper printed by intaglio and personalized with ink-jet.


In Hungary, the Hungarian Banknote Printing Company is the only company which has intaglio printing plate production technology and the necessary machine park for the implementation of high-quality, large-format intaglio printing.


HBPC has nearly century long traditional experience in intaglio printing technology and many more.
