SAFE ID Solutions AG secures multi-million follow-up passport deal in Egypt

Munich, Germany – August 8th, 2007

SAFE ID Solutions AG secures a follow-up order from the Egyptian Government after the successful implementation of phase 1 of the national passport project has been completed. SAFE ID is awarded to supply another large rollout of automated passport machines for the issuance of machine readable passports. This project extension also involves SAFE ID’s software solutions and underlines the clear proof of concept with the fulfillment of all requirements set by the Egyptian Government.

“One of the most decisive factors for the extension of the ongoing project was the close collaboration and the established trust between SAFE ID’s experts and the Egyptian authorities in the past year”, says Karsten Neugebauer, CEO of SAFE ID Solutions AG. “The challenge of the project now is the migration of the system to a de-centralized setup without compromising the high level of security standards that were set in the beginning. Our solutions are built for exactly this kind of migration path and will additionally be able to easily allow future system changes such as the switch to an ePassport scheme. SAFE ID is ideally positioned to support customers in taking these type of decisions step by step without neglecting efficiency and quality aspects”, adds Neugebauer.

Together with its partner Neology, SAFE ID met the stringent demands of the Egyptian authorities by offering a market proven, fully automated passport personalization system that combines benchmark efficiency and personalization quality with a unique customizable design and advanced features for a highly secure personalization process. The Egyptian government will provide its citizens with travel documents that ensure the highest standards in security, quality and usability.

“This follow-up award is the proof for being a reliable and trusted long-term partner and reinforces the company’s position in Middle East and Africa as a leading provider of best-inclass passport personalization solutions,” says Karsten Neugebauer, CEO of SAFE ID Solutions AG.
