IDEMIA has developed seamless border solutions comprising kiosks and eGates
The Australian Department of Home Affairs has commenced the installation IDEMIA’s technology in eight international airports, providing a completely seamless traveler journey, it was revealed in a press communique.
In 2019, IDEMIA, a provider of identity technologies, won the phase one contract to upgrade the airports’ old arrivals systems with its self-service biometric kiosk solution locally named ‘Gen3 Kiosk’. The kiosk went through rigorous system and user experience testing by the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Australian Border Force, as well as passengers in real-life situations.
The phase two of the contract involves the delivery of eGates incorporating advanced biometric functionalities and capabilities: Travelers complete an initial 1:1 verification against their passport at the “Gen3 Kiosk” enabling a match when they present themselves at the eGate.
After the strictest lock-down, Australia is now well prepared to welcome national and international travelers at its borders with the smoothest, stress-free travel experience.
“The innovative Gen3 border control solution contains advanced biometric capabilities that not only help streamline the passenger’s airport experience, but also increase security,” remarked Wee Liang TAN, Senior Vice President APAC Public Security & Identity, IDEMIA.
