It utilizes optical character recognition (OCR) technology to extract information, such as the passport holder's name, DOB, passport number, and expiration date. Passport readers are commonly used by immigration authorities and border control agencies to quickly and accurately verify the identity of travelers and prevent fraud. Several types of passport readers are available, including handheld devices, desktop scanners, and kiosks. Handheld passport readers are portable and can be used in various settings, such as airports or border crossings. Desktop scanners are typically used in offices or other fixed locations where large passports must be processed. Kiosks are self-service devices that travelers can use to scan their passports and complete immigration formalities. A passport reader can process passports much faster than manual verification, which helps reduce wait times and congestion at borders and airports. This results in a more efficient travel experience for passengers. It uses advanced technology to scan and verify the information contained in passports. This helps to reduce errors and the risks of fraudulent documents being used for travel.
