Hajj & Umrah
All Hajj and Umrah tour operators and agents have been requested by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to purchase and use an electronic passport reader to process the passports of pilgrims.
With over 1,200 units deployed for the Saudi Arabian Government, Access IS’ OCR640 Hajj & Umrah Package is approved and trusted by Saudi Arabia MoFA to equip all its consulates and visa application centres around the world.
Please note that the interface between MoFA and our device is already integrated within the MoFA website.
As such, you won’t have to develop anything for this Hajj season – the machine is plug-and-play, ready to use.
If you wish to develop your own interfaces with other systems, our software development kit makes this easily achieved.
The OCR640 Hajj & Umrah Package is a full-page, multi-illumination ePassport reader. It captures ultraviolet and infrared images, as well as the full page of a passport in colour as now required by the Saudi Arabia MoFA.
In a simultaneous, single action the reader also decodes the machine-readable zone (MRZ) and processes RFID data – including the holder’s image – from the chip.
The OCR640 Hajj & Umrah Package automatically detects when a document with machine-readable data has been presented. Additionally, it is able to compensate for out-of-position MRZ data, so that the advanced recognition engine reliably provides highly accurate and very fast document reading capability, allowing large volumes of documents and smart cards to be processed quickly and efficiently.
The OCR640 Hajj & Umrah Package has a compact design, is robust and rugged. Its quality-assured manufacture ensures years of heavy-duty, frontline use.
