What is biometrics? And what is the purpose behind it?

If you are planning to go to a foreign country then there is a high possibility that you must have heard about biometrics. But have you ever wondered that what is the purpose of Biometrics? Or why is it that no individual can get visa until and unless he has his biometrics done? Today we will be finding answers to these questions.

First of all, let’s find out what is the biometrics. Biometrics in general is an individuals fingerprints and a digital photograph of his/her face. The biometrics are held at an institution that has been granted the provision to do so by the embassy.

Now, as we know what biometrics are, let’s find out the purpose behind biometrics. There are many reasons behind the conduction of biometrics.

  • The very first reason is that it makes it more difficult for someone to steal, forge or use your identity.
  • It resolves problems of errors that may happen if your name, date of birth, place of birth are similar to those of someone else.
  • It confirms your identity the next time you apply so it becomes easier for you to re- enter the country.
  • These are some of the reasons behind the conduction of biometrics. But, there is one more main reason behind this. There was a time when there was no such thing called as biometrics and international

tourists  and  students  used   to travel freely without their biometrics being conducted. During that period, many tourists and students whose main motive was to earn money rather than travelling or studying used to throw away or misplace their passports willingly and started working illegally. When they were caught doing these acts, their identity  couldn’t  be  verified astheir only proof that was their passport couldn’t be found.

It was due to happening of these acts that biometrics were initiated and made mandatory for every international immigrant. As of today, no international immigrant can get a visa if he hasn’t had his biometrics done.

Biometrics are valid for the period of 10 years from the date they were conducted. After that period, they are re-conducted. It is very important  that  every international immigrant travelling to a foreign country is a legit one and abides by the rules imposed by the country. No illegal act should take place and everything should work in a proper manner…
