Vision-Box To Provide Australian Airports World’s First Contactless Customs
VISION-Box has entered into a contract with the Australian Government to deliver the world’s first automated ‘contactless’ traveller clearance processes for people arriving in Australia by air at all international airports.
This contract is part of the Seamless Traveller program, which began in 2015 after the Australian Government selected the company to provide biometric border control SmartGates at all Airports’ departures.
The 3-year contract will deliver the next generation of Automated Border Control passenger-processing technology. Vision Box’s latest innovations will assist the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection to collect and verify biometric data from all passengers arriving at Australian International Airports.
It will also deliver a new capability that will enable known travellers to self-process through the border without the need to physically use a passport (contactless), entirely relying on facial recognition technology.
“This contract represents an unparalleled milestone in the history of automation at the border, since it is the first time a government will implement biometric identification through contactless services,” said Miguel Leitmann of Vision-Box.
“By selecting Vision-Box, the Australian Government once again puts its trust onto us, to build their leading ambition, which is an amazing recognition to our commitment to society in this respect. I am very proud of what our people have achieved for our customer and how they feel being part of something bigger: making the world a better place.” ♦
