Vision-Box has announced a new integrated Biometric Exit solution which allows border authorities to efficiently collect the necessary information to assist in identifying persons of interest. With the tremendous growth of the number of travellers and national entry and exit points, many countries are vulnerable to illegal immigration, identity fraud, smuggling, or trafficking. All the while legitimate travellers line up in long queues to get to their families, reach their holiday destination or to get to their business meetings. At a time when security threats haunt international borders around the world, one of today’s greatest challenges is to find a pragmatic balance between security and facilitation. An effective immigration system requires an end-to-end process that collects exit data and correlates it with entry data. The goal is to ensure that a traveller cannot depart using someone else’s identity, or have someone depart on his or her behalf. Without biometrically verified exit data, there is no meaningful way to accurately determine whether foreign nationals have overstayed his or her visa. The challenge is to collect and match relevant data in a reliable and efficient manner. Building upon the company’s innovative approach to integrated border management and traveller facilitation, the system features a powerful orchestration platform connecting different land, air and sea border immigration systems with traveller-centric self-service touch-points for biometric verification at every national entry-exit point.
