How to get AID for a specific NFC TAG

I am trying to read an NFC tag of type ISO 14443-3a (NXP – NTAG215) with NFCTagReaderSession. With NFCNDEFReaderSession It works without any problems. However, since I only support devices from iOS 13 and need access to various other tag information (tag ID, etc.), I use NFCTagReaderSession:

session = NFCTagReaderSession(pollingOption: [.iso14443, .iso15693, .iso18092], delegate: self)
session?.alertMessage = alertMessage ?? ""
session?.begin()

Unfortunately, the tag is simply not detected with NFCTagReaderSession.

I guess the application identifier is not listed in my Info.plist (com.apple.developer.nfc.readersession.iso7816.select-identifiers) file. Unfortunately I have no idea how to find the correct AID. I have listed all possible AIDs I could find:

<key>com.apple.developer.nfc.readersession.felica.systemcodes</key>
<array>
  <string>12FC</string>
</array>
<key>com.apple.developer.nfc.readersession.iso7816.select-identifiers</key>

The correct AID is apparently not there yet.

How do I find the correct AID for my tag? Can I read it somewhere?
