[The Chosun Ilbo, November 7 2007] Korea to Issue e-Passports Next Year

Korea will start issuing electronic passports in the latter half of next year.

The high-tech e-passports will be embedded with microchips that store a traveler's personal data.

The move aims to strengthen passport security as part of Korea's efforts to join the U.S. Visa Waiver Program.
