Egypt to apply Biometric passport system

CAIRO: Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab is scheduled to inaugurate ePassport gates at terminal three in Cairo International Airport Saturday, Youm7 reported.

The inauguration will be attended by Minister of Civil Aviation, Hossam Kamal, and Chief Executive Officer of the Holding Company for Airports and Aviation, Mahmoud Essmat.

ePassport gates enable passengers to finalize airport formalities in a shorter time than traditional ways.

The gate is an automated border control process operated through a “facial recognition technology.” It is a combined paper and electronic passport that contains biometric information used to authenticate the identity of travelers.

Once the checks are made, the gates will open automatically for entrance or departure.
