Secure visas

Make border crossing smoother and more secure

Traveller flows become more intense and IATA (International Air Transport Association) says the number of air travellers will double by 2036, reaching 7.8 billion passengers.

To make the access to your country more secure and smooth, we recommend replacing traditional stamps with self-adhesive visas that offer a higher level of security, are machine readable, and comply with ICAO and/or Schengen Area recommendations.

A range made to measure

Thanks to its experience in the field of secure identity documents, IN Groupe was trusted with the manufacturing of the visas of numerous countries. We produce more than 20% of the millions of visas issued annually in the Schengen Area.

We can secure the visas to facilitate their authentication:

  • Through the design with complex bacgrounds, rainbow printing, micro-lettering;
  • Use of offset printing with inks that react to chemicals or scratching, or inks that are visible only under ultraviolet (UV) or infrared (IR) light;
  • Intaglio printing for tactile effects or latent images;
  • Paper which embeds security fibres and a glue formulated to completely stick to it and tear the fibres our if the visa is removed;
  • Holograms which can have many different types of effects;
  • Traceability with a unique and secure identification number.

The security profile will be adapted to each project according to security, personalisation equipment, time and financial imperatives.
