What We Do

In addition to border-control quality validation services, IDV Pacific provides:
  • Work rights related checks, including our Australian Visa Checking service that references the Australian Government Department of Home Affairs visa database:
    • individual or large volumes of Australian visa (VEVO) checks with no manual data input required via our VEVO batch process service,
    • National Police Checks and ASIC checks,
  • Face recognition and biometric capabilities, including:
    • proactive public / private space facial recognition software enabling clients to instantly match on-site individuals to a database of known/registered people,
    • validate key identity document and biometrically match the image contained to the individual presenting the artefact,
    • ‘live selfie’ mobile applications that enable border control standard identification for remote validation.
The majority of IDV Pacific’s solutions utilise the same technology approved by ICAO and used by border-control agencies in most countries. We have developed our products for use via mobile app, web browser, or in-situ document reader / personal attendance.

Who is TrustID?

Our UK partner TrustID is a company that was born out of a growing need for organisations to validate identity documents quickly and easily meaningfully.

As identity fraud and new regulatory demands increase, industries and organisations require an easy-to-use, realistically priced and accurate solution to protect their business.

TrustID was established in 2006 and has developed a broad customer base throughout the government and private industry sectors.
