Thales is an experienced and trusted partner for passport issuance services. In 2004, the Danish Police outsourced the personalizing of Danish ePassports to Thales. 9 million passports has since then been personalized by Thales. Besides ePassports, Thales is producing Visa stickers, Tachograph cards, Resident permit cards, and biometric readers in Denmark. We also supply and personalize the Rejsekort. Interoperability is the key for all our products therefor the international standards and regulations are always strictly followed.
The local site in Ballerup is certified by the Danish Police and Secret Service but also by Visa and MasterCard. Thales is known for a reliable and secure service and the use of the local site ensures an efficient workflow, both in terms of data transfer and document delivery. A traceability mechanism is put in place to ensure end-to-end security, from application by customer to issuing of document which is audited by police. Security is our state of mind.
Furthermore Thales offers services for banks in the Banking & Payment Services (BPS) unit. Here contact and contactless payment cards are provided to financial institutions, supporting their digital transformation with software, services and data encryption for digital banking, payment & ID verification. In Denmark we supply around half of the banking cards.
