Solving Border Management with Biometrics



Hundreds of millions of air travellers cross international borders every year. For government border management agencies, it’s important to know the identities of each and every one – so that the vast majority can travel freely and the very few passengers ‘of interest’ can be identified.

Governments around the world are now starting to improve their border security and reduce the impact of document and identity theft by introducing biometric technology. By deterring or detecting passengers travelling with a false identity, biometrics helps tackle the potential risks of terrorism, smuggling and other illegal activities. At the same time it also allows for the rapid and reliable collection of the traveller data needed to enable secure and automated border entry – thus facilitating the lives of ordinary business travellers and tourists.
