Philippines Background Check


1. COUNTRY ID - This is an ID Validation tool. It is checked against a reference library that is used to compare/validate documents to verify if they come from official/legal sources ONLY. This includes governmental agencies, embassies and consulates. As IDs are updated/changed, so is the reference library.

This Validation Tool covers more than 200 countries. The Tool also assess the type of document and the information that should be on it (e.g. full name, gender, DOB, images, card number, chip, etc.); placement of the text and photographs; wording/spelling; issue/expiration dates (ensuring the validity period is appropriate for that document); document number (ensuring the numbering pattern is appropriate for that document); card dimensions (approximate); issuing authority; coloring/shading; images; background; seals; holograms; watermarks; MRZ code; demographic data (subject’s name, DOB, signature, etc.); and all other components of the document.

If there are any doubts as to a document’s validity, we will return a “decisional” result so clients can investigate further directly with the data subject.

The I.D. can be a local Identity Card or Passport validation in most cases. Must provide a picture of Passport.
