Dermalog biometrics improve border security in Thailand



Dermalog’s biometric border control solution has processed some 49 million people and helped the Thai Immigration Bureau detect over 4,300 people on a national blacklist and some 127,000 travelers in breach of visa violations since it was introduced in May 2019. The biometric system has also detected 3,166 people that were arrested for fraud attempts.

The new border control system identifies a person by their biometric data to prevent any fraud attempts and identity theft. Passport, fingerprints and face of each traveler are captured upon arrival and departure.

Dermalog’s solution is based on its Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS) and performs one-to-many matching – it matches fingerprints, face and iris for enhanced accuracy and reliability. The German biometrics company says the new system in Thailand takes 0.1 seconds to identify a passenger through fingerprint and facial matching.

The border control system has been implemented at 65 border crossing, out of which 16 are international airports and 49 are land borders and seaports. Thailand currently has 1,020 biometric counters fully operational for entry and exit.

“We are very satisfied with the new Dermalog biometric border control system, as it has increased the rate of catching criminals at our borders tremendously,” says Immigration Bureau chief Sompong Chingduang.

Dermalog’s biometric border system has been deployed in 16 countries and more than 240 government agencies in 90 countries have chosen its biometric technology, including Afghanistan.
