Brazil’s Viracopos International Airport (VCP), which handled a record 10.3 million passengers in 2015, has implemented the latest Automated Border Control technology, as it aims for a faster and enhanced secure passenger control process.
According to VCP, the innovative Automated Border Control solution implemented by multinational Vision-Box allows for a faster passenger identification process, through eGates that ensure both passport authenticity and biometric passenger verification through an automated and self-service process.
According to a statement released by the São Paulo airport, “the passengers are in control of their own journey through immigration and emigration control, without directly interacting with the Federal Police, as long as they are at least 18-years-old and hold a Brazilian electronic passport.”
“In this new process at the eGates, the passenger is identified in just a few seconds, using Vision-Box advanced biometric technology. The system compares the facial image stored in the chip of the passengers’ passport against the live captured image, all according to the highest quality and security international standards, making sure that they are the genuine owner of the document,” according to a VCP statement.
