SmartGate deployed at Sydney airport

Thursday, July 23, 2009

SMARTGATE, the self-processing option for travellers, is now available at Sydney International Airport.

In general, people may stand in a queue and spend lot of time at the immigration check counters in the Airport. Passport check and other authentications are done manually at many of the airports accross the world. Here we have a scope for human errors. Nw imagine a computer or a machine doing these checks with no scope of errors.

SmartGate uses ePassport data and face recognition technology to perform the customs and immigration checks usually conducted by actual officers.

The system aimed to make border crossing simpler and easier, but still maintain border integrity, Home Affairs Minister Brendan O'Connor said. The system was first introduced at Brisbane airport in 2007 and is now also available at Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and Cairns international airports.

To be eligible to use SmartGate, Australian and New Zealand travellers need to be the holder of an ePassport and be aged 18 or over.
