Ensuring border integrity in every entry/exit point
Vision-Box® has worked for the last 10 years with several countries tackling the challenges of border security and building a Nationwide Border Control Framework that allows an integrated approach to border protection and increased efficiency while still ensuring a positive traveler experience. This approach is based on the implementation of a powerful IT platform that integrates Automated Border Control devices at every Entry/Exit point of a country. The ABC touch points are used by travelers in a self-service way, utilizing biometrics (face, fingerprint and/or iris) as main identification token, which helps speed up traveler processing, decreases waiting times and generates a positive traveler experience at the border.
Having passengers pre-profiled, as well as effectively authenticated, identified and checked against criminal databases in real-time ensures a strong and effective control at borders, reducing illegal travelers, facilitating the automatic identification of overstays, and allowing a fast identification of potential threats.
Our border control solutions can also check vehicles crossing borders through the capture and verification of registration plates, in combination with drivers’ biographic and biometric data to further combine identity ownership and subsequent liability.
