Dubai’s General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) rolled out the pilot phase of its ‘Smart Tunnel’ at Dubai Airport’s Terminal 3, which allows passengers to go through passport control quicker than ever before.
According to the GDRFA, passengers who use the new system will simply walk through the biometric recognition system without having to stamp their passports. Through the use of facial recognition, the tunnel’s technology will allow the traveller to complete the passport control procedure within 15 seconds and without the need for human intervention.
The GDRFA in Dubai is working with Emirates airline on the projects.
