Which data elements are extracted and verified?

The following data fields are sent for all verification sessions when visible on the document. The most basic requirement for an ID document to be accepted by Veriff's service is having a portrait photo and displaying the holder's name, a date of birth and a document number. Without these, a document can not be used to verify a person's ID and the verification session will be resubmitted with the reason "Document type not supported". 

  • Name
  • Date of Birth/ Year of birth
  • Expiry dates (when present on the document)
  • Document type 
  • Document Number 
  • Personal number (national identity number, when present)
  • Issuing country ISO
  • Gender (when visible on the document)

The following data fields can be added for extraction on an optional basis. If these are necessary for your business or legal needs, we will be able to start extracting them additionally.  These are not generally used and are seldom presented on ID documents. 

  • Nationality (when present on the document)
  • Citizenship (when present on the document)
  • Date of issue (when present on the document) 

We do not collect and forward this information, even when present on the document: place of birth, address, tax number, social security number, other names such as parent's names or maiden names. 

We do not perform age validation or employ decision logic based on name matching. 

There may be many kinds of documents within a document type which we verify, meaning that some ID cards have certain data fields, but others do not. If a document type as a whole is accepted for verification, it will be processed and the available data fields will be extracted.
