How it helps

Securing borders with seamless access to data

iBorders GovernmentGateway is the link between traveler data and border security systems. Combining the multiple data feeds into one easy to access feed, GovernmentGateway simplifies the process for governments to have a complete overview of all traveler’s data traveling to and from their country. 

Following international standards, the data feed is delivered in a format that allows easy integration with the government’s own internal border security systems. 

iBorders GovernmentGateway data stream will include:

  • Passenger Number Record (PNR) – Created at the point of booking, the PNR contains valuable and rich information on travel intentions, delivered at specific time frames prior to departure.
  • Advanced Passenger Information (API) – This data is also referred to as a plane’s manifest data. It is the confirmation of all the travelers who boarded the plane and is only confirmed once on departure of the aircraft.
  • Interactive Advanced Passenger Information (iAPI) – Contains the same information as API, but is delivered to the Government interactively when the passenger checks in at the airport, allowing Governments to prevent travel for passengers and crew, if appropriate.
  • Departure Control System (DCS) data – This data provides a rich snapshot of traveler data collected at the airport.
