I don't understand this method... are the checks to residents usually heavy on airports? Because by my experience those gates in Europe are for avoiding queues as the manual checking itself takes very little time (they only check your passport with few or no questions at all).

I think that the final goal for this is to free resources to make the heavy checks queues (visitors from outside) shorter.

Yes, the machines found at US airports can provide a smoother process, but, I sense that there needs to be a mechanism to reduce system abuse...

I agree with OriK's position on this. The aim for Global Entry and NEXUS programmes is to free up existing resources and increase capacity and processing time. Global Entry and NEXUS programmes pre-screen its members, deeming those who are "lower risk" to make certain offences (such as asylum claims, crimes, etc.). These machines are only processing those who have been pre-screened, so the risk of system abuse is considerably lower than those who go through traditional immigration methods.

Latest news from Norway and Germany

Norway Deploys Self-service Passport Verification at Oslo Gardermoen Airport for a More Efficient Border Control
September 05, 2013

Vision-Box® S.A., leader in automated border control equipment, designed, developed and manufactured ABC eGates for the Norwegian National Police Directorate and supported their deployment at Oslo Gardermoen Airport. Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, is prime contractor in this project.

In the first phase the ABC eGates are to be used by Norwegian nationals only and will allow faster passport and biometric verification, thus reducing the waiting time at the border control and resulting in an improved traveler experience.


German eGate contract largest in Europe

Germany has announced the winners of a major Euro 30 million tender that will see biometric-based eGates rolled out across the country on a scale yet to be seen in Europe.

Some 90 eGates will be implemented across Germany’s major airports, including, Frankfurt, Munich, Dusseldorf and Hamburg. The contract is valid for 10 years and includes an option for 180 more eGates.

A consequence of this new project roll out is that the existing iris recognition-based registered traveler system in Frankfurt - ABG (Automatisierte Biometriegestützte Grenzkontrolle) – will in future be replaced with the new eGates.

Vancouver airport’s automated passport control system extended to Canadian travellers

In addition to Vancouver, Montreal, Chicago-O'Hare, and New York City's JFK Airport are expected to be implementing this automated passport control system as well.

Immigration // 19 Sep 2013 // No Comments
Automated Passport Control installed at Montréal-Trudeau

By Future Travel Experience


Canadian and US passport holders can use the Automated Passport Control kiosks to pre-clear customs in four steps: digitisation of the passport, taking of a photo, answering of questions on the screen, and presentation of documents to the CBP officer.

Aéroport de Montréal (ADM) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) have announced the introduction of 12 Automated Passport Control (APC) kiosks at Montréal-Trudeau Airport.

This has expanded quickly. I hope US Airports will install this and speed up immigration for US residents and Canadian residents alike through American borders. What is frustrating for Canadians transiting through American airports is that despite being an international flight on the arrival-side, it is considered a domestic flight on the departure-side, Canadians have to go through US Immigration despite not having to be subjected to the same immigration rules/procedures as tourists from other countries. It usually takes no time for Canadians to go through US border as a transit passenger.

Great news in response to my previous post. ORD APC Kiosks now allow Canadians expedited immigration!

First e-gates land in Brussels
By the summer of 2014, Brussels Airport will be equipped with an extra identity management system for passengers arriving at Zaventem.

By installing six "e-gates", the airport will become the first in Belgium to bring in Automated Border Control technology which has already been introduced in other countries such as Germany, the Netherlands and Portugal. What is it all about? In the future all passengers bearing an EU passport and arriving from a country outside the Schengen Area, whose final destination is Belgium or (in certain cases where there is a connection involved) another location within the Schengen Area, will be expected to enter a security portal equipped with a biometric recognition system. "This would apply to, for example, a Spaniard flying from London to Brussels," explains Peter De Waele, spokesman for the Federal Police, which is overseeing the project.

Lisbon Airport installs automated border control e-gates
Lisbon Airport has installed 24 automated border control e-gates in the arrivals and departures areas of its main terminal.

The e-gates feature a two-step border control process where verification of the travel document is undertaken at the entrance to the e-gate, before facial recognition takes place once the passenger enters the e-gate.

As well as offering e-passport verification, the e-gates can also process passengers with the Portuguese National Citizen Card and non-e-passport holders in conjunction with pilot projects implemented for Brazilian and Angolan nationals.

Heathrow might be the first to expand the use of e-gates to wider number of foreigners (Helsinki expanded the service for Japanese visitors)

In reference to the “future use of automated immigration systems”, the spokesperson added: “We will be increasing the e-passport gate capacity for EEA [European Economic Area] passengers in a phased approach and are in the process of developing automated border controls for non-EEA passengers.”

El Dorado International Airport
New Express Migration Gates


> To be installed in Cali and Medellin airports too, for frequent flyers. They have to register into a database and pay annually around 105 dollars to use whenever they need. Two points are available now and two new ones will be opened on BOG's international pier.

The passenger only needs to be registered and have a biometric passport at hand.

They should ditch the exit control like the UK.

Does anyone have a list of ports where citizens can perform self immigration?
So far I can think of:

Australian ports-
Australian Citizens (entry only)*
New Zealand Citizens (entry only)*
UK Citizens (entry only)*
US Global Entry registered citizens (entry only)*%

New Zealand ports-
Australian Citizens (entry and exit)
New Zealand Citizens (entry and exit)

Hong Kong ports-
Hong Kong Citizens (entry and exit)@
Macau Citizens (entry and exit)#@
South Korean citizens (entry and exit)#
Frequent flyers (entry and exit) %

South Korean ports-
South Korean Citizens (unsure where gates are placed)
Hong Kong Citizens (unsure where gates are placed)

Portugal ports-
Portuguese Citizens (unsure where gates are placed)

Chinese ports-
Chinese Citizens (entry only)
Hong Kong Citizens (entry only)@
Macau Citizens (entry only)@

*alleged Brisbane trial for exit
#pre enrolment required
%pre enrolment with fee required
@requires use of National ID card/home return permit card instead of biometric Passport

Do you know of any more reciprocal services, especially ones that are free and do not require registration?

In Lisbon, the gates are located at the arrivals and departures areas of Portela Int'l Airport.

Slowly but surely the technology is moving towards including everyone

Australian self-service passport facility on trial for Singaporeans



SINGAPORE — Singaporeans visiting Australia can now zip through immigration checks, after Canberra extended the use of a self-service passport-processing option at eight major gateways to the country.

The extension of SmartGate to Singaporean travellers who own a biometric passport makes the Republic the first country in Asia to be given this access, Australia’s Minister for Trade and Investment Andrew Robb said yesterday. It is currently available to Australian, New Zealand and United Kingdom citizens on a permanent basis and to United States and Swiss electronic passport holders under trial arrangements.

Under the trial, SmartGate is available for all Singaporean e-passport holders aged 16 years and above travelling to eight Australian cities: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Darwin, Cairns and Gold Coast.

Orlando becomes first US airport with automated border control technology for visa waiver countries

Orlando International Airport is the first US airport to take advantage of automated border control technology for incoming travelers from visa waiver countries.

Travelers from these countries will benefit from this new technology rollout, which comes in the form of SITA’s Automated Passport Control kiosks. The airport is promoting it as “land, touch and go,” emphasizing the reduction of friction for international arrivals.

Passengers arriving from the 37 visa waiver countries will be processed via the APC kiosks, ideally leading to shorter, faster moving lines as there will be more touchpoints for immigration processing than in the traditional solo border agent scenario.

At the moment, the kiosks are used in tandem with border agent as a pre-processing tool- so the actual checkpoint doesn’t forgo the human touch; rather this is an initial processing point to expedite the next phase with an actual border control agent.

Eventually, the idea is to allow for complete processing via the kiosks – however, this will take some time to ensure that the process matches the border agent as far as identifying suspicious arrivals.

It’s not a giant leap that there will soon be facial recognition technology to identify suspicious behavior or other factors – like an increased temperature that could suggest flu or other incoming disease (especially for places like Asia that already do this with manned cameras).
