“E-enabled passport: cleared London Heathrow arrivals immigration in 10 seconds via the e-passport kiosks. International Entry-enrolled? Clear US arrival immigration in 10 seconds utilizing facial recognition. No departure immigration for UK and US. That is the way in which to go, Digital!” wrote Kapoor.
He added, “By the way US International Entry is open to Indian passport holders too. One has to enroll and pay a price. And I perceive e-enabled passports are within the works in India too.”
“With know-how and providers like e-passport kiosks and International Entry, there’s completely no human interplay required for arrivals immigration. Purely automated and digital. Lengthy traces are when you do not have this, and have to be manually processed by an immigration officer”, he wrote additional.
