Prepare for EES With Proven Technology

With EU Entry/Exit System (EES) regulations launching in 2021, the region must modernize border management systems quickly to deal with increased passenger flow, and to reinforce security infrastructure. The EES is a part of the Smart Border package introduced by the European Commission. It will be fully operational in all the Schengen countries by the end of 2021. The main purpose of the EES is to register data on entry and exit, and to refuse entry of third country nationals crossing the external borders of all Schengen member states through a central system.

In July 2018, BorderXpress™ became the first permanent kiosks to provide entry and exit border control in Europe with the launch of 74 biometric-enabled kiosks at Pafos International Airport and Larnaka International Airport in Cyprus. Read More.

In June 2019, BorderXpress™ kiosks were implemented at Keflavik International Airport (KEF) in Iceland. The kiosks are part of a pilot to simulate the impending requirements of EES in the Schengen Area.

Built by an airport, for airports, we understand the passenger journey and develop solutions that not only make a meaningful impact by increasing throughput, but that also provide the best customer experience.

The key issue impacting border control is the lack of space and resources required to undertake the critical security screening of passengers. Make an informed decision – read the full white paper comparing eGates and Self-service Kiosks.

BorderXpress™ USA

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) selected Innovative Travel Solutions to deliver its first Automated Passport Control (APC) solution in 2013. Initially available at Vancouver International Airport’s pre-clearance facility, our BorderXpress APC solution quickly expanded and is now in use at 35 major airports across the United States and CBP pre-clearance and US territory airports in Canada, the Caribbean and the Pacific, making ITS the largest and most experienced provider in the industry.

BorderXpress APC expedites the entry process for U.S. citizens, U.S. legal permanent residents, Canadian citizens, travellers utilizing ESTA (Visa Waiver Program) and travelers entering with a visa. Travellers use biometric-enabled kiosks to respond to CBP inspection questions and submit biographic information. BorderXpress APC is a free service, does not require pre-registration or membership, and maintains the highest levels of protection when it comes to the handling of personal data or information. Travellers using BorderXpress APC experience shorter wait times, less congestion and faster processing.

The success of BorderXpress APC at airports has allowed for other industries to take advantage of the program’s benefits. In 2015, BorderXpress APC kiosks were implemented at Canada Place cruise terminal at Port Metro Vancouver, becoming the world’s first self-service border control solution available at a seaport. In 2016, BorderXpress APC was implemented at Port Everglades, FL, marking entry into U.S. seaports. In 2018, BorderXpress APC kiosks were implemented onboard Ferries del Caribe’s passenger cruise ship, the MV Kydon, making them the first ever border control kiosks to be implemented on a passenger cruise ship.

At the kiosk, travellers select their language, scan their travel document, have their biometrics captured, and answer a few simple questions. This encrypted information is sent to a border control agency that assesses it and returns a government response in seconds. The traveller then takes their completed receipt to a border officer who reviews the kiosk session results.

BorderXpress™ accepts all machine-readable travel documents, including passports (with or without chips), residency cards, enhanced driver’s licenses, visas, and all documents with QR and 2D barcodes.
