iBorders® TravelAuthorization

Pre-departure travel authorization system

Overview

The best way to reduce congestion, improve border security and lower the cost of processing inadmissible persons is to prevent these persons from reaching your border in the first place.

SITA’s iBorders® TravelAuthorization provides pre-departure travel authorization, effectively exporting border control to the country of departure.

Using interactive advanced passenger information (i-API), as well as electronic travel authorizations (ETAs) and visas, iBorders TravelAuthorization pre-screens travelers as early as when they first make their travel plans. It expedites the processing of visitors at the border by preventing unwanted travelers from ever reaching it.

How it works

iBorders TravelAuthorization is a complete solution for pre-departure travel authorization.

It includes a full e-visa issuance and management system, as well as the ability to issue electronic travel authorizations (ETAs) that make a traveler-friendly visa substitute  possible for visitors from visa-waiver countries.

The real-time denial of boarding functionality ensures all last-minute checks are in order prior to authorizing the airline to board the passenger.

Access is available through the internet for traveler self-service or through existing airline and travel agency systems, thus providing seamless integration with existing travel industry processes.

Integration with existing government databases and watch lists via other iBorders® modules ensures that admissibility decisions are always based on the latest and most accurate risk assessment data.
