Identities are at the core of government service delivery and with the experience of over 100 million biometric citizen registrations we deliver proven-and-tested solutions using fit-for-purpose technologies for biometric registrations, automated identification, identity databases, identity cards/documents and identity verification.

Biometric registrations

Exaro offers any combination of form based, online and mobile (laptops and tablets) registration channels to suit the business requirements of the client.

These registration channels cater for the collections of demographic data, biometric data (photo and up to 10 fingerprints) and custom data relevant to the client. The registration channels can incorporate the payment of administrative and service fees using vouchers and online payment platforms.
