Vision-Box implements biometric border control solution at Jakarta airport

June 5, 2017 - 

Working with the Indonesian immigration authority, Vision-Box has installed an advanced biometric automated border control infrastructure system at Soerkarno-Hatta International Airport (CGK) in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Located in the airport’s new terminal 3, the Vision-Box biometric border control solution comprises of 32 vb i-match Automated Border Control (ABC) eGates for eligible Indonesian nationals self-service border clearance and 10 vb e-pass portable biometric suitcases to facilitate improved mobility in passenger clearance.

In addition, the system includes 32 individual fingerprint and passport scanners to expedite the processing of foreign travelers at manual counters.

The integrated ABC solution provides “higher accuracy in passenger identity verification at the border, while increasing airport security and passenger processing capacity,” Vision-Box said.

As the first major deployment of ABC eGates in the country, the solution is designed to quickly and accurately process arriving and departing passengers while improving airport security.

The system is also the first-of-its-kind mobile border control system for immigration officers to efficiently process passengers.

“This next-generation Border Control solution is designed to provide the airport, the travelers and
border control authority with a modern, secure, hassle-free solution, and improve efficiency and airport capacity,” said Jean-François Lennon, vice president of global business development and sales at Vision-Box. “Our platform unleashes all the benefits of an innovative self-service immigration clearing process, supporting the future growth in passenger traffic.

“It adds capacity to the airport’s infrastructure without the need to expand its architecture footprint, thus providing a flexible solution for airport stakeholders during peak seasons and times. We are delighted to have been selected to deliver this digital transformation program for the Indonesian border, in collaboration with PT Jaya Teknik, our local partner.”

At last month’s connect:ID, Vision-Box introduced a new integrated biometric exit solution that features an orchestration platform connecting different land, air and sea border immigration systems with traveler-centric self-service touchpoints for biometric verification at every national entry-exit point.
