Passport & Secure ID

Passport & Secure ID

WorldReach’s best-practices in the issuance and handling of secure travel and identification documents, as well as immigration and border management processes, have positioned us to best support governments in proactively managing their borders and supporting their citizens’ rights with secure ID documents.

WorldReach’s issuance solutions ensures secure travel documents are made with industry-leading security practices, following ICAO standards for machine-readable travel documents (MRTDs), including RFID chip, machine-readable zones (MRZs), and the latest in security printing features.

WorldReach also sees the potential of ICAO’s proposed Digital Travel Credential (DTC) to provide new opportunities for governments to offer citizens new options for streamlined travel, such as using the DTC for Emergency Travel Document requirements.

Secure digital IDs and federated ID systems provide industry-leading security features to travellers and citizens, also using ICAO standards. Federated ID derived from secure travel documents as a higher level of authentication plays an integral role in citizens having minimal data exposure while still being able to verify their identity when accessing e-services whether from government or financial institutions.

Cloud-based SaaS Secure ID document issuance

Secure ID document issuance is a multi-step process: application, enrolment, identity verification and entitlement, interview, authorization, release, and finally issuance and renewal. The multi-step process can be time and resource intensive, requiring premises, personnel, and transmission of documents from location to location in-person, by courier, or by internal mail.

WorldReach’s cloud-based SaaS secure ID issuance and verification solutions allows governments to reduce inefficiencies. Applications can be started and submitted online from the citizen’s home or office, extending the issuance office’s reach. Secure encryption guarantees that electronic filings are both more secure and faster than mail.

Identity verification can be accelerated via processing in the secure cloud, allowing rapid, rigorous examination of entitlement while government authorities focus on the higher-risk issues.

Processing of recording authorization, orders, and release, as well as inventory tracking, are done automatically in the cloud, permitting these steps to be executed in near-real time and tracked automatically, dramatically reducing the time needed from traditional methods.

Both citizens and governments receive a secure, streamlined document issuance system, protecting citizens’ private data and governments’ proprietary data and property with reduced overhead, time, and personnel requirements.

Platforms

Know Your Traveller

Know Your Traveller (KYT) is our innovative capstone in enhanced identity and document verification. KYT is modeled on the financial industry’s Know Your Customer (KYC) practices, the process that banks and financial institutions use to verify the identities of their clients before carrying on business. KYT allows governments to not only identify and verify the travellers coming to the country prior to leaving home, but to verify the identity and entitlements of those accessing e-government services within the country.

Microsoft-based platforms 

Our passport offerings are powered by our commercial off-the-shelf platform combination of our Microsoft Silver Application Developer Partner offerings and our in-house customizations and extensions.
