Identity Document Scanning

Most identity verification regulations require identity information that can be extracted from Identity documents only (e.g. place of birth). These regulations also require a licensee to hold a copy of the ID document itself. Identiway uses advanced machine learning technologies and artificial intelligence to interpret ID documents.

How it works

• Consumer snaps photo of an official ID document
• Identiway extracts characters on the ID document (OCR)
• Identiway machine / AI assesses ID document validity
• You receive results including AI score (validity)

Please note that all processing of ID documents is subject to a GDPR compliant data processing agreement.


Identiway allows you to streamline and automate your onboarding processes. Reduce support staff processing up to 80% and use Identiway AI validation score to review only special cases manually. You can opt to use a hosted service that manages the consumer generated photo process, or just send ID document photos to our API.

Test the service

I hereby give Identiway permission to process my ID document for testing purposes. Identiway will process the ID document and generate results to you for testing purposes. No personal data related to your request will be stored longer than 24 hours.

End User Experience

The service can be offered to an end user standalone in a web or app environment and will require the user to take a picture with a smartphone of a valid ID document.


Identiway uses sophisticated AI and algorithms to process ID documents. Identiway returns as a minimum:

• Copy of ID document
