PNRverify is PVSglobal's simple and secure openAPI tool that any online booking tool, travel management company or GDS can utilize to provide travelers with instant international travel document verification. At the time of booking, a PNR (Passenger Name Record) is created which contains traveler and trip data. Participating organizations securely submit the PNR data to PVSglobal's PNRverify API which verifies travel document requirements for the trip and emails the traveler(s) with requirements listings and, if needed, information on how to obtain required documents through PVSglobal's worldwide travel document services.
Unlike basic "visa widgets" or "app plug-ins", PNRverify is a fundamental part of PVSglobal's system capable of verifying passport validity to the day, visa requirements to the hour and transit options to the minute. PNRverify is also not simply an email alert tool, it follows the traveler throughout the process with reminder emails as the trip nears and provides details back to the agency or corporate account with it reporting tools ensuring compliance. PNRverify will also alert travelers to items such as passport validity requirements for entry, common informational requests by immigration agents (such as support letters, copies of contracts or electronic pre-registrations) and fees which must be paid upon entry or departure.
As an optional service, PNRverify can also cross references known visas associated with the traveler's passport in order to indicate if a new visa is required or a previously issued visa is still valid.
