E-gates now at Sangster International Airport, NMIA next
Electronic-gates are now in operation at the Sangster International Airport in Montego-Bay St James.
E-gates are automated passport control systems that use biometric technology to authenticate the identity of a passenger.
Senior Communication Strategist in the Ministry of Tourism Delano Seivwright, said the gates will reduce the wait time for processing passengers.
He noted that additional work is needed for a more seamless operation, at the island’s ports of entry.
In the meantime, E-gates will soon be implemented at the Norman Manley International Airport, in Kingston.
Testing is slated to begin shortly.
