We support any document which complies with the ICAO spec for types: TD1TD2, and TD3 size machine readable travel documents (MRTDs).

In addition, Berbix officially supports validation for the following identity document types:

  • AAMVA-compliant driver license or identification card. This includes all state or provincial issued driver licenses and identification cards in the United States and Canada. AAMVA-compliant identity documents will include a PDF417 2D barcode on the back of the ID.
  • ICAO-compliant machine readable travel documents. This includes all passports worldwide as well as many national ID cards. These travel documents will include a machine readable component on either the front (passports and national ID cards) or the back of the document (national ID cards).

Note: Due to to legal restrictions, Berbix does not permit the use of U.S. military ID cards for identity verification.
