Checks of photographs and fingerprints in travel documents
Wednesday 24 January 2018
The Aliens Act and Passport Act are to be amended. In the future, aliens will be obliged to allow photographs and fingerprints to be taken when undergoing entry and exit checks, to enable verification of their identity and travel documents. This already applies to Swedish citizens. The Riksdag voted in favour of the Government's proposal.
