Scan Issue Dates with Mobile Passport Scanning Solutions

The latest Anyline release offer a new scanning feature so you can collect the issue date of passports with a mobile scan. This issue date scan feature is being rolled out first for passports from a number of European countries. The full list can be viewed in our documentation.

This new feature uses the parallel scanning technology that we first announced with the release of Anyline 4. In addition to this new feature, driving license scanning has also been improved with scanning accuracy and speed improvements.

Issue Date Capture with Mobile Passport Scanning

Mobile passport scanning is one of the fastest ways to collect a range of personal data from an individual. It’s used by police forces, retail outlets, hotels, fintech companies and more to quickly register individuals for services and processes. With Anyline’s 99% scan accuracy and secure offline scanning, it provides an unmatched agility and ease of use.

On top of the issue date, MRZ scanning also collects up to 14 other data points from passports. These include:

  • All Given First Names
  • Check Digit for all Dates
  • Type of Document
  • Check Digit for Document Number
  • Person’s Gender
  • Final Check Digit for all Stored Information
  • Expiration Date of the Document
  • Date of Birth
  • Check Digit for the Date of Birth
  • Check Digit for the Expiration Date
  • Country Code
  • Surname

This solution is currently used by companies like Global Blue, Swisscom, and Scalable Capital.
