A Passport Scanner is an electronic device that enables the user to scan and read all machine readable Passports, ID Cards and Driver Licenses and electronically save these information on to a computer system.
Though they sound very similar there are can be some differences depending on the model of the Passport Scanner/Reader. Some earlier models of Passport scanners can only scan Passport/ID image and save these images electronically in computer systems. Whereas modern age Passport Scanners have built in readers that can OCR all machine readable Passport/VISA/ID cards and Driver Licenses and hence they are also called as Passport Readers.
Passports/ID cards are scanned and verified usually at Airports, Immigration offices, Hotels and other local regulatory bodies.
