Introduction

Use these APIs to validate user data against government databases.

MetaMap's Government Check merit cross-checks user data against official records. They provide our clients with the certainty that they need to ensure that their users are real people and exist in government records with the information provided.

Some data points that we offer (multiple validations can be executed with a single check) :

  • Name
  • Document number
  • Date of expiration
  • Date of issue
  • Date of expiration
  • Status validations

📘

Note

Facematch is not available through the Government Check APIs. Instead use the SDKs.

Metamap has connections with a variety of official sources and might include institutions :

  • Electoral institutes
  • Population registries
  • Tax agencies
  • Immigration institutes

Government Check availability depends on local partnerships and alliances that we are always looking to expand.

For a list of all Government Checks, including those available to the Metamap SDKs, go to the Government Checks product description.
