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.
