After the successful installation at Faro’s Airport, Lisbon International Airport is now also equipped with our automatic passport control system.
The “VBeGate” was developed by Vision-Box and Foreigners and Borders Service (SEF), and integrated in the “Electronic Border Control System” – a modernized border control program using cutting edge technology working alongside biometric passports on entry and exit checkpoints at Lisbon airport border crossings.
This is the first system worldwide to allow an automatic control of passengers who hold electronic passports, thereby removing the need for human action.
This innovating system will permit a highly rationalized management and a significant boost to the efficiency of the means for border control. By reducing the process of border crossing to an average of less than 20 seconds it will speed up significantly the movement of passengers at border control.
