The Innovation Session will be held 13:30 BST (08:30 EDT) and Gordon Wilson will be speaking to how crucial the Safe & Seamless Travel Journey is on the road to recovery for the travel sector, including border control and immigration. Trusted remote identity and document verification is at the forefront of digital onboarding and WorldReach is full-steam ahead with these real-world, innovative projects and pilots using biometrics and our software platform capabilities:

Eurostar Pilot Project LAMINAR: targeted for mid 2021, where travellers at London’s St Pancras International Station will be able to use a touchless biometric lane without presenting any formal identification or ticket on arrival at the station, reducing friction and safety concerns.

Canada’s Chain of Trust Pilot: employs a similar approach for air arrivals. Biographic and biometric data is captured early in the travel continuum and a derived digital travel credential (DTC, using the new ICAO standard) is stored in the secure wallet on the smartphone. This verified credential is shared and combined with dynamic risk assessment to determine the appropriate channel for each passenger arriving at the border. The ultimate aim is to achieve zero wait time at a new touchless border for eligible, low-risk passengers, starting with returning Canadians in the current pre-production scale pilot. The first air flight crew has already been processed through Chain of Trust.

EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS): unparalleled success with this UK Home Office smartphone based remote digital ID Verification (IDV) and enrolment capability. Completed applications have surpassed 5 million with an industry leading completion rate.

Biometric Summit 2021 is an outstanding opportunity to learn from experts and end-users and discover the latest innovation in biometrics. WorldReach is proud to support this event as an Innovation Sponsor.
