This can be done anywhere, using standard smartphones without expensive and clumsy dedicated hardware. No training required and flawless input of personal information.

To gain access to the chip in your passport, you need to scan the Machine Readable Zone of the passport (or identity card) using the camera of the smartphone. To read the chip in your passport through Near Field Communication (NFC), you simply hold the passport to the back of the smartphone.
