The Scanbot SDK offers multiple ways to scan identity documents such as ID cards, passports, US divers licenses, or visas. Scanbot has become famous for its document scanning solutions, but the highly accurate recognition of text and classification based on patterns or machine learning now enables much broader use-cases.

We offer three technically different solutions to scan identity documents. First, you can scan the machine-readable zone (MRZ) of any international passport, visa, or many id cards (for example in the EU). The MRZ covers the most important data fields and features checksums, to automatically verify the data. To get 100% precision, you can use the NFC module to extract data from passports. Here, the data will be downloaded using near field communication. To get even more info, like the photo, all given names, the maiden name, and more, you can use the ID scanner module, which scans the missing info with the camera.

Key Features

Supported ID Documents


Basically, all international travel documents such as passport cards, passport booklets, visa stickers, and visa cards, but also identity- or ID-cards have MRZ codes on them.


All international passports with the biometric symbol are supported. The feature is supported by 120 countries in 2017 and more than 500 million passports were handed out so far.

US driver's license

Scan the PDF417 code on the license and instantly see the data on your device. You can also capture the driver's license as a high-quality PDF for further inspection. For more information about the US driver's license please follow this links:

Camera Scan

Currently, we only support German ID cards and passports in the photo scan solution, but the detection can be easily expanded to support more countries and variations as needed.
