1.1 How does it work?

Keesing Documentchecker provides you with access to the world’s most comprehensive reference database for ID documents and banknotes. The database contains detailed descriptions and high-resolution images of thousands of passports, ID cards, driving licenses, visas and banknotes — including their security features — from over 200 countries and organisations. Keesing closely cooperates with international government agencies to safeguard the quality of the database.

The database is used as a reference by professionals across multiple industries when performing manual document checks or when they need additional information to support automated verification.

Keesing works closely with governmental institutions, including embassies, Departments of Motor Vehiclesand central banks, to obtain documents to populate our continuously expanding database.

Each document is scanned under different light conditions to showcase high resolution images that can then be accessed by our customers.

The database is continuously updated with new information. When a new sample is added to Documentchecker, customers have access to it right away. Keesing works closely with governments and central banks to obtain banknote and ID document samples as soon as they become available.
