iBorders® BorderAutomation

Self-service gates and kiosks for border control

Overview

Border management agencies need to process more travelers with fewer resources. Automating the border control process for low-risk travelers frees up border control resources to focus on higher-risk travelers.

SITA’s iBorders® BorderAutomation offers secure self-service gates and kiosks that provide an alternative to traditional resource-intensive manual border controls for travelers holding biometric travel documents.

How it works

iBorders BorderAutomation uses biometric data to verify the identity of travelers, along with documentation and watch list checks to automate border control in a repeatable, secure and accurate manner.

Features

  • iBorders BorderAutomation ABCGates:  immigration e-gates that allow full automation of immigration procedures for arriving and departing travelers. ABCGates offer fully secure, self-service, automated border crossing for travelers holding a biometric credential such as an e-passport. They can be integrated into a registered traveler program
  • iBorders BorderAutomation ABCKiosks: self-service kiosks that improve the efficiency of the border by automating the capture and verification of travel document and biometric data, while performing the required background checks. They improve resource efficiency at the border by moving some manual tasks away from an immigration officer

iBorders BorderAutomation is designed for ease-of-use even for travelers that travel infrequently. SITA integrates the best technologies for travel-document capture as well as for biometric capture.

iBorders BorderAutomation works with all forms of government-issued electronic IDs. It supports all three ICAO-approved biometrics – face, fingerprint and iris.

Extensive management and monitoring tools are provided for border supervisors. Combined with SITA's extensive maintenance and support services, your automated border is always available and operating at maximum capacity.

Part of an end-to-end solution

Along with iBorders RiskManagement and iBorders TravelerData, iBorders BorderAutomation is part of a unique, end-to-end solution that optimizes traveler interactions at the border. Each of these systems can be implemented with minimal changes to the legacy systems in place. Our partnership with leading manufacturers gives SITA access to industry-leading automated-gate hardware in a variety of configurations.
