Security Throughout

In collaboration with CBN's design team, customers are able to select from our array of security features including tactile intaglio printing and CBN's hidden Multiplex™ patterns.

Robust Construction
Visas are constructed with materials and adhesives that ensure maximum protection against removal and alteration once applied to the passport. Covert features, including frangible patterns and chemically sensitive paper, ensure attempts at removal become highly visible to our clients' immigration officials.

Protection of Personal Data
Personal information may be protected with secure laminates and one or more digital security elements. Each visa is designed for compatibility with the personalization technology used within our clients' issuance system.
