The International Organization for Migration (IOM) and APSCA will organize The 4th Conference on Technical Cooperation & Capacity Building for Border Management is organized by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and APSCA.

It is the largest gathering of National Government Agencies including Immigration, Border Control, Customs and other agencies with responsibilities in the area of Border Management in Asia. 

SITA is pleased to be a part of this event. Our own Damian James will take part in Workshop 4, covering “the challenges and benefits of biometric registration at the border.” 

Biometrics underpins the concept of a “single token” which is being driven by the IATA Fast Travel initiative. The introduction of biometrics has the potential to deliver greater efficiency in supporting the ‘light touch’ management of passengers by removing the need for human intervention at various points along the departure and arrival journey. 

In addition to the increase in facilitation for travellers, biometrics can improve the level of security, whilst lowering the error rate when relying on human document validation. The infrastructure to capture biometrics within the airport is commonly available, the challenge is to ensure that the quality is of a sufficient standard for identification and verification purposes. 

The subsequent challenge is how to use the biometric and verify it against a national identity management system.

Meet our experts at stand B08.
