Can the information on my epassport chip be altered?

Any attempt to change the passport information in your chip would break the seal, or digital signature, that is unique to your data and was put in place by the passport issuing authority. Any tampering to that data would be immediately detected by the electronic passport reader and be seen by a border agent. Nothing can be changed within the chip of your epassport, even at a foreign border by official agents.
