A Europe that Protects: The Commission reports on progress made on travel document security

Some weeks ago, the European Commission reported about the progresses made in the field of the 2016 Action Plan on travel document fraud. 

The EC Report on this shows all the good progresses achieved over the last year and a half in all four key areas of the identity infrastructure identified in the Action Plan: registration of identity, issuance of documents, document production and document control.

Furthermore, the Action Plan has an important role in improving the visibility of the issue of travel document security. Thus, EU Member States have improved information exchange on national identity practices and agreed to enhance security features for uniform visas and residence permits.
