What's the difference in use of nationality codes and country codes in World-Check One API?

It's possible to query ISO nationality codes and ISO country codes from World-Check One API. As far as I can tell from the API docs, when some data is related to a country it specifies it in a Country object (with code and name). Is it safe to assume that all these Country objects will have an ISO country code inside and not a nationality code?

Is there some specific call where it's necessary to use the nationality code instead of the country code?

Thank you.

You can extract the list of ISO codes using the "SEQ-pre-country-list: Get the ISO country list" API and you are right, while feeding the country/location data it has to be fed in the ISO format for WC to identify and process it.

Nationality codes must be used while performing a passport check, for example: ISO code for Germany is "DEU" and Nationality code for Germany is "D".

Hope this helps.
