The Republic of Maldives, a popular tourist destination, has announced the installation of an upgraded border control system to improve passenger processing standards.
The new systems include a biometric passport registration facility, fingerprint identification system and automatic gates (eGates) to allow passengers to pass through border control at Ibrahim Nasir International Airport using their ePassports to achieve automatic clearance through immigration.
Delivered by Dermalog, a German biometrics company, the new systems are now in operation.
Biometric border control systems are becoming increasingly necessary across the world, when terror threats are at their worst. Other providers of ePassports and fingerprint recognition systems also deliver facial recognition applications to enable another layer of border security.
