Thales Border Clearance Applications for fast decision by the border guard

Once registered, the traveller goes to a stationary manual border control booth, where the information pre-enrolled at the kiosk can be retrieved immediately thanks to a Single Identity Token (or passport or fingerprint).

A dedicated web-based border clearance application automatically identifies the traveller (live face capture through integrated camera), and generates the traveller’s profile. The application immediately highlights the main information and any alerts, while displaying all the data captured and all verifications performed during pre-enrolment and background inspection checks.

The border guard can then complete the traveller border clearance and enrol the passenger into the EES.

The EES Border Kiosk interacts with Thales Gemalto Border Management System
