​Automated Document Check

The latest addition to IATA's world-leading Timatic Solutions portfolio, Timatic Mobile is a mobile application for use by airline, ground handling and security agents. It provides convenient access to the latest immigration rules and regulations, and enables agents to easily run personalized document checks just by scanning passenger travel documents with their mobile device. The scanned documents are then automatically recognized and cross-checked against the comprehensive IATA Timatic database for compliance with applicable immigration regulations, and agents are instantly shown a clear decision.
