SITA Border Control | SITA

 

Overview

The border control point is the frontline for protecting your national borders. Border agents need accurate and timely information at their fingertips to stop individuals who could represent a threat or who are undertaking illegal activities. At the same time, your border operation needs to be both flexible and efficient to manage the ever-increasing numbers of travelers and the many varying land, sea and air border control points you need to manage.

From a traveler’s perspective, the border control point can be the most stressful part of their journey, particularly if there are long delays and queues. They are looking for a seamless or frictionless experience where they can walk across the border with minimal checks and delay.

SITA Border Control provides you with a portfolio of products to help you create a secure, frictionless border. It gives you the tools you need to control and protect land, sea and air crossing sites, and supports the objective of a seamless traveler journey experience across your border, promoting trade and tourism into your country.

SITA Border Control includes:

  • SITA Entry Exit border clearance to efficiently process travelers at manned immigration control points, including biometric capture, identity verification and document and visa checks
  • Automated Border Control (ABC) solutions, such as gates, kiosks and other frictionless control points, to process low risk travelers faster and more efficiently, including the capture of biometrics
  • Customs and health declarations using either the traveler’s smartphone or ABC kiosks
  • Portable and mobile solutions, giving border agents the flexibility to roam and to operate at temporary border crossing sites
  • Integration with SITA Intelligence and Targeting to provide watch-list checks and risk assessment of travelers
  • Immigration and biometric enrollment using the traveler’s smartphone or ABC kiosks
  • Capture of in-country events such as hotel and stadium entry to provide greater details of the traveler’s movements and support their facilitation in-country
