[2] With TripPass, tourists can issue mobile passports for use in stores that require identity verification or for tax refund services. TripPass was developed by Lordsystem, which introduced the first mobile passport service in South Korea through a competition in 2019 and received two innovation awards at CES 2024 for its latest expansion of the service on TripPass.

[3] In the app, tourists can also issue mobile debit cards that they can top up using a credit card. The debit cards can be used to pay for transit, including subways, buses and taxis, and to pay for goods in stores that accept TripPass mobile debit cards. Both the debit cards and passports will be issued in the app in the form of a QR code.

[4] According to the city government, the TripPass application is also expected to benefit small merchants in Seoul, as they only have to scan QR codes issued in the app without having to separately buy passport readers or payment terminals for overseas credit cards. TripPass comes as part of Seoul’s efforts to draw 30 million international tourists by 2026.
