ePassport Scanning using NFC

You may have seen how some international airport immigration checkpoints are allowing arrival visitor to place his/her ePassport on a scanner, and the passport details are retrieved within seconds.

It looks like a great deal of magic has just happened within seconds. Yes, indeed, the same technology can be supported on your Android mobile app. By placing your NFC-enabled Android device on an ePassport (ICAO 9303 compliant), the following details can be retrieved from the embedded chip:

  • Name
  • ID Photo
  • Gender
  • Passport Number
  • Date of Birth
  • Document Type
  • Date of Issue
  • Date of Expiry

ePassport NFC scanning, coupled with OCR (optical character recognition), will greatly eliminate the passport fraud cases in customer onboarding journey.
