Applicant Registration

Every applicant presents their completed registration form, with supporting documentation, to a verification officer. The officer checks that the required details and documentation is legible, correct, and sufficient to initiate a registration process. Once verified, the applicant proceeds to the registration officer.

Capture Data

The following information is captured:

  • Personal details and demographic data
  • Biometric information which may include iris, fingerprints and facial features
  • High quality portrait photo
  • Scans of supporting documentation
  • Applicant signature

Verifiy Data

The information captured is verified by both the system and the trained registration officer for accuracy and authenticity.

National Identity Database

A digital citizens’ registry allows governments to link this information to all government department databases. They can register taxpayers, issue travel documents, register voters, etc., using one central identity information system.

Identity Card Issuance

Identity documents are produced using highly specialised technology and equipment. A visual check is performed on every ID to ensure that there are no visual flaws. The successful retrieval of encrypted information is verified using a QR code and chip reader. The ID cards are then available for pick-up by the applicant, which includes biometric verification. This mitigates any risk of identity theft.

Access to Services

With a registered, verifiable biometric identity, the citizens of a country can easily access government services such as healthcare and grant funding. Governments are also able to accurately plan and budget for the provision of these services to all citizens.
