Passport Scanning API
Our passport scanning API allows you to scan global passports and parse data stored inside the machine readable zone (MRZ).
Powering ID Verification Technology
Our passport scanning API powers native and web applications around the globe, using a variety of development frameworks.
Request A Quote
API usage is based on the number of monthly scans, and scales based on scan volume. Use our Quote Request Form, or give us a call at (504) 434-0222, and a representative will provide custom pricing.
Why digitally scan passports?
Scanning and parsing passports is ideal for businesses that operate globally or need to process individuals from a variety of countries. The consistency and accuracy of data contained within a passport MRZ allows for accurate scanning and parsing.
ID Parsing From MRZ
Studies show that nearly 1 in 2 records in most CRMs contains a typo. You can completely eliminate data entry errors on identity data with ID parsing. ID parsing takes the raw information stored in the barcode and formats it for instant entry into your existing database or form. ID parsing is more accurate and reliable than optical character recognition (OCR).
Automate Signs Ups & Enrollment
Remove unnecessary paper and processes from your onboarding. Digital identity verification and ID scanning allows your customers to sign up at their own pace, and gives your team confidence in the accuracy and validity of their information.
Use our API to check passports and passport cards
We perform best-in-class MRZ analysis to help detect and catch suspicious IDs.
Perform Facial Recognition
Leverage our facial recognition API or SDK to add face matching to your application. Match faces in photos and video to the image on a passport.
