i am now the proud holder of a philippine epassport! :)
it arrived last thursday, right on schedule.
it looks just like the machine-readable passport, except it has an epassport logo right below "pasaporte."
the cover is made of pretty thick cardboard, and on the back, it says "this passport contains sensitive electronics. please do not bend, perforate, or expose this passport to extreme temperature or excess moisture."
i can't wait to use it! i wonder if it's true that going through immigration is faster with a philippine epassport?
