Secure Passport Transfers
ID Passport Express now has Secured Cloud Storage (SCS) which not only ensures conformity with the EU 's GDPR but also ensures safe secure transfer of digital passports to your customers.
The benefit is that unlike emails which are problematic in resizing online passports, making them unusable, Secure Cloud Storage ensures customers securely download their image at the correct size, and even if their, (or your) email is hacked the biometric passport and data remain secure.
Currently the UK online application form has been integrated so that citizens applying online, simply transfer their passport image directly from the secure cloud storage to the online government form. This secure transfer is being rolled out for other countries as integration with their online application forms is being enabled.

Currently the Secure Cloud Service (SCS) creates an UK ePassport and generates a ”Photo Code”, enabling the applicant to apply for a British passport directly on the government application form on the gov.uk page. This secure transfer is being rolled out for other countries as integration with their online application forms is being enabled.
Passports securely stored on the SCS server are identified by a unique code, which is printed in-store and given to the customer at time of purchase. This code enables the customer to download the image or transfer to a government website.
To conform with GDPR rules the SCS stored images are deleted automatically after 6 months.
SCS is an optional add-on to ID Passport express and may be purchased by clicking the link below.
