Paperless Passport Apps

De La Rue Let Consumers Keep Their Travel Documents on Their Smartphone

— April 10, 2016 — Tech
De La Rue is a tech brand aiming to revolutionize how consumers travel with a passport app that aims to turn travel documents into a paperless feature for added convenience and safety. The smart passports will allow consumers to keep a digital copy of their documents directly on their smartphone for easy access and travel without the fear of losing the original copy.

Travelling with important documents such as passports can cause stress for many consumers that are worried about misplacing or losing the documents. De La Rue is aiming to produce digital passports containing similar identification chips as the hardcopies have that can be read wirelessly at airport checkpoints. This is ideal for consumers that want to keep their passports at home or happen to lose it while en route.

2. Contactless Travel - Paperless passports provide seamless travel experiences, and businesses can leverage this trend to create innovative solutions for contactless travel, such as digital boarding and AI-enabled security checks.
3. Blockchain-based Identity Verification - With increasing concerns around privacy and security, blockchain-based solutions can provide end-to-end encryption and enable secure and decentralized identity verification for various industries such as finance and healthcare.
Industry Implications
1. Travel - The travel industry can leverage paperless passport apps to offer a seamless and stress-free travel experience, improving customer loyalty and engagement.
2. Finance - The finance industry needs secure digital identity solutions to offer personalized services and prevent fraud, thereby creating innovative blockchain-based identity verification products with the collaboration of tech brands such as De La Rue.
3. Healthcare - The healthcare industry can use digital identity solutions to secure patient data and prevent fraud while providing seamless services, enabling a partnership with digital passport app providers such as De La Rue.
