During the KYC process, users need to provide a valid ID to begin the KYC. OCR technology will scan the information shown on the government-issued ID card. Not only that, AI technology will compare and match the similarity of the user’s face between the ID card and a selfie photo.
Let us clarify what a valid ID means and the condition.
1. Should contain a face photo, full name, date, and year of birth.
A valid ID document must include a face photo, full name, date, and year of birth. If the necessary information is divided into the front and back of your ID card, users need to take pictures of both sides.
2. Should be printed in Alphabet, 한글, 漢字, 日本語, Кириллица.
ID cards need to be written in English Alphabet, Korean, Chinese, and Cyrillic Alphabet. ID cards written in languages other than mentioned alphabets may be rejected. But if the approvable character is written aside, it is acceptable. Also, ID information must be printed on the document. Handwritten ID cards will be rejected.
3. Should not be expired.
Expired IDs will be rejected.
4. Should be issued from the government.
Valid ID cards should be issued by the government. ID cards other than passports, driver’s licenses, and government IDs will be rejected. Student’s cards, employee IDs, civil service cards, various membership cards, and others are not considered valid ID.
5. Characters should be recognizable.
Worn-out or damaged IDs can be rejected.
