Installing New Kiosks at Two of Jamaica’s Flights

As part of upgrades being made to the island’s airports, Jamaica’s Passport, Immigration &amp, Citizenship Agency ( PICA ) is installing and testing new kiosks at Montego Bay’s Sangster International Airport and Kingston’s Norman Manley International Airport. These shops are automated card control systems to simplify customer movement.
” We are very pleased that PICA is installing shops at our top terminals in Montego Bay and Kingston, as they will provide more comfort for stopover customers by speeding up processing times through the emigration halls”, said the Hon. Edmund Bartlett, Minister of Tourism, Jamaica. ” This will provide a more smooth airport experience as we progress through our top spring season, during which we expect to welcome report- breaking arrivals”.
The shops, which are a function at several airports worldwide, use genetic technology to verify the identification of passengers. They scan the guest’s passport and taking a picture of the guest’s experience, which is then compared to the digital photo stored in the passport’s chip. These restaurants will serve as an alternative to using computers staffed by immigration officers, thus allowing people to walk through passport power more quickly. In addition, they free up emigration officials to concentrate on more important border security tasks.
” The installation of automated restaurants for passport manage at our flights is an excellent use of modern technology to improve the overall customer experience at Jamaica’s flights, which is important as we continue to grow visitors to the target”.
Donovan White, Director of Tourism, Jamaica Tourist Board, added,” Customers ‘ first impressions of Jamaica’s overall tourism goods take place upon landing, so we are happy to soon be able to increase them”.
It is anticipated that airline passengers may have access to as many as 100 immigration shops before the end of the year.
