Digital Identity Capture

Digital Identity Capture

Identity enrollment is crucial for improved risk assessment and is a convenient way to provide biometrics that can facilitate border crossing.

SITA Mobile Travel Authorization utilizes best-in-class Biometrics for Automatic Quality Assessment and captures with liveness checks and optional biometric verification of taken selfie pictures with the image extracted from the passport chip and/or an Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS).

Data validation

Data validation

SITA Mobile Travel Authorization provides a modern and convenient way for applicants to enroll for an eVisa/ETA application. Automatic passport capture and data extraction help to reduce human errors and increase data quality for future risk assessment and passenger pre-clearance.

With the support of more than 12,000 ID documents from every country, applicants can simply take a picture of their passport and use their mobile device’s Near Field Communication (NFC) to extract the information in the most secure way.

Digital payment collection

Digital payment collection

Secure payment collection is provided and can be configured to support different payment methods. Default configuration provides capabilities to collect payments with MasterCard, VISA, AMEX and Apple Pay or Google Pay.

Fee management is provided as part of the eVisa/ETA solution and can be configured for each country and visa type.

Eligibility wizards and Application submission

Eligibility wizards and Application submission

Built-in wizards assist applicants in selecting the appropriate visa type, minimizing errors, and reducing the need for application verification steps.

In traditional visa issuance, many applicants face difficulties in selecting the appropriate visa type. Additionally, the verification of the correct visa type represents one of the costliest services offered by embassies or provided by Visa Appointment Centers (VACs). The consequences of choosing an incorrect visa type are twofold: it leads to frustration for the traveler and incurs unpredictable or unnecessary costs for the immigration service, particularly when operating on a larger scale.
