BlinkID is a great tool to quickly onboard or register users in mobile apps. It uses a mobile camera to scan IDs, driver's licenses, passports, work permits, visas, and other identity documents.
BlinkID supports all documents containing MRZ (Machine Readable Zone), which includes most passports and IDs. IDs and driver's licenses with the PDF417 barcode are also supported. Scanning of all other documents is enabled with custom OCR templating.

MRZ is an abbreviation for Machine Readable Zone, whereas MRTD refers to Machine Readable Travel Document. MRZ is a document format containing the document holder's data in a form which is both visually readable and encoded with optical character recognition. It can be found on most of the passports and identity documents worldwide. BlinkID SDK or WEB API supports scanning and decoding of all documents with MRZ.
