The.Passport is a blockchain decentralized individuals identities network which would operate independently without any centralization of any kind. It considers initial reading of users’ original passports which are issued by their country of citizenship. In addition to verification of other necessary identity credentials.
The.Passport also acts as an identity verification method for users who require to provide proof of identity, as well as to service the need to instantly share identity data with services that require proof of official identification (Airline reservations, Hotel bookings, online Financial services, online registrations, online shopping / shipping services, etc.). With The.Passport, users will not need to upload their proof of identity again and again for every service they wish to enrol or register in. Users would upload their documents once, and use The.Passport for all. Users can share all or part of their data, send and claim back their The.Passport, set times of views for receipance, enable / disable printing, saving, copying, forwarding, fetching and so on.
The.Passport is your Owntrol, is the slogan of The.Passport, which means that The.Passport is under your OWN CONTROL. Owntrol is a new word formed by fusing together OWN and CONTROL. Owntrol is a blend word or portmanteau word first used in The.Passport slogan.
The future travel journey starts when an individual buys a travel ticket, book a hotel, get a visa, arrives to the airport, get boarding card, proceeds to immigration check in, goes to airlines launch, then to flight gate, arrives at destination, goes to immigration then to home or if a visitor to a hotel.
In The Passport blockchain, the passport, visa, ticket, hotel booking, and profile are all in a block owned by the individual with Passport Address which can be read in every stage of travel journey.
Everytime The Passport Address is read, a data is stored in the blockchain, controlling next step (eg. if purchased ticket, then have three choices, to cancel, reschedule or travel. If time comes and user does not catch the flight, then destination country’s immigration would not accept entry.
Simple reader is placed at entrance of the airport, airlines counter, immigration, airlines launch, and flight gates, where user simply scans The Passport QR of his mobile phone and blockchain is updated.
When touring around the visited country, user does not need to curry paper passport, but only a mobile phone with The Passport Address, where officials, hotels, shops, or for any identity need, The.Passport Address can be scanned in seconds to stand on user’s status.
Today, when an individual arrives in another country, the first authentication stage is often the check in desk of the airline. With limitation of validation mechanism, either by the airlines’ procedures, or skills of check-in staff, or even regulations of both origin and destination countries, including countries issuing visas or passport, and the purpose of travel, transit country. All and more creates serious chances for errors.
When entry visas are required, The.Passport system stores the details of a visa issued by country making it available on a need-to-know basis to specifically identified stakeholders; like other countries and airlines. It is the future of validating the details before travel commences.
Individuals get The.Passport, scan their local authority official passport, enter and verify residence address, bank reference, known people references, and biometrics. In addition, ministries of foreign affairs of countries load and update data about who (what passport) requires entry visas, type of visa, and validity, all into The.Passport Blockchain Network.
A database of individuals travel history are maintained in The.Passport blockchain. When a traveller from a country checks in at the airport, the airline system connects to The.Passport Network and fetch verifies Travel Authorisation, and provides the result at the check-in desk itself, right at the first travel stage. Then when user walks to the immigration desk, again the validation is done by checking The.Passport. And upon arrival to final arrival destination, all user’s database is updated to ease process of entry.
The.Passport would strengthen the entire validation process, reducing the chances of fraud, human-trafficking, risks to other people, all whilst improving the overall operational efficiencies and costs incurred by all stakeholders.
We all know about blockchain from the financial world, but we are developing a different user experience benefiting from blockchain extremely secure nature and its intrinsic ability of deference to extremely deep and complex checks, it’s the ideal application for decentralised travel authorisation.
With a centralised source of truth for immigration officials and involved stakeholders to refer to, many of the aforementioned issues could be significantly controlled. For example, the inclusion of a travel history transaction holder in the Blockchain would enable observing and authorising overstays right at the time of check-in.
Stolen, damaged, and lost passports could be quickly reported by genuine owners and authorities to the Blockchain, in order to prevent fraudulent usage immediately—and the co-operative tracking of criminals by agencies such as Interpol could become more straightforward with travel history based triggers available in the same place.
