A lot of consideration before they decide to implement it. They know the benefits of new technology such as this, and the most important is the courage to implement it.
This time they opened a tender for independent processing tool system that will be introduced towards the end of this year, a system that uses scanning technology or fingerprint recognition, iris or facial structure in a number of major airports and seaports.
Peter Dutton, Minister of Immigration said that the application of this technology to more than 90 percent of the passengers avoid filling documents with processing paper or manually by the officers.
True, that does not mean the tourists no longer carry a passport at all, they are still required to bring their passport, but in the long run will have the leeway to not show it.
"But in the short term, this will make it easier, faster, for people to get in and out of our airports."
