  • Only you can share them with your consent, and they are immediately destroyed after use.

  • Seamless

    • Enroll, create, authenticate, and control the use of your digital profile from the comfort of your home.
    • Say goodbye to hands full of passports and boarding passes at the airport.

    Safe

    • Reduce touchpoints and physical contact by using your digital identification instead of exchanging documents and devices between yourself and airport agents.

    How digital identification works:

    When creating your digital profile for digital identification on the mobile app:

    1. The app will guide you to capture an image of your passport or driver’s license, along with a selfie. Facial recognition technology will compare the two photos to verify your identity.
    2. Upon successful verification, a digital profile will be created on your device. This profile will include your selfie, a unique identifier, and relevant information from your passport
    3. Your facial biometrics are immediately deleted and will not remain part of your digital profile.
