Security technology developer Vision-Box has completed the installation of its biometric Automated Border Control (ABC) solution at Ezeiza International Airport in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The new ABC eGates are available to arrivals above the age of 18 who also possesses an Argentinian passport. In just 17 seconds they can pass though the eGates unattended, as the system accurately identifies individuals based on their biometric identifiers.
Behind the eGates, orchestration software compares and verifies the information embedded in the passenger’s passport with live facial and fingerprint scans. Additionally, extensive and accurate background checks are automatically conducted against INTERPOL, no-fly lists, and internal security lists.
Rogelio Frigerio, minister of the interior for Argentina, said, “The biometric eGates will not only speed up the transit time of travelers, but will also allow us to gather more accurate information of those entering and exiting Argentine territory using digital technology.”
Miguel Leitmann, group CEO, Vision-Box, added, “This project is part of our continuing mission of making positive contributions to the safety and security of people the world over. I am extremely pleased that with the installation of the ABC system at Ezeiza Airport and the planned expansion, Vision-Box is able to improve the quality of Argentinian smart border services and increase traveler’s access to them using trusted digital identification technologies.”
Further expansion plans will allow Argentinian citizens to use the national ID card and third-country nationals to use their ePassports at the ABC eGates. Additional eGates are on track to be installed at Terminal A, with another two slated for Terminal C to process departing passengers.
