Ghana airport gets new border control and visa management system


Ghana’s Kotoka Airport has had a new biometric border check system installed as part of a World Bank funded project.

The fingerprint system, deployed under the e-Transform programme, will systematically verify travelling documents and capture traveler information.

e-Transform is a World Bank funded project under the Ministry of Communications.

The new system will help combat fraud efficiently through systematic document verification and biometric traveler authentication and also enhance control against illegal stay in Ghana, a press release noted.

Additionally, the system provides a modernization of the country’s information systems to control borders and issuance of visas.

It is also aimed at improving tourism and business through its eVisa Management & Control processes.

The system operates by reading the e-Passport chip and performs systematic and thorough document verification.
