New Thales Gemalto Border Kiosk fully EES compliant
The new and modern Border Kiosk is designed to comply with the EES regulation requirements.
It combines expertise in document verification, passenger biometric capture, and verification to ensure the best user experience and traveler enrollment quality for immigration.
Border kiosks allow travelers to perform the necessary controls in a faster self-service manner and provide greater flexibility with regards to the airport floor, passenger flow management, and process passengers better.
EES Border kiosk key benefits
EU EES compliant following the standards required for biometric capture
User-friendly thanks to an intuitive web application
Biometric quality thanks to smart kiosk design, high-resolution camera, illuminations, and in house fingerprint scanners
Speed thanks to static (and not motorized) cameras and biometric (and not ticket) token between 2 steps
Thales Border Clearance Applications for fast decision by the border guard
Once registered, the traveller goes to a stationary manual border control booth, where the information pre-enrolled at the kiosk can be retrieved immediately thanks to a Single Identity Token (or passport or fingerprint).
A dedicated web-based border clearance application automatically identifies the traveller (live face capture through integrated camera), and generates the traveller’s profile.
The application immediately highlights the main information and any alerts, while displaying all the data captured and all verifications performed during pre-enrolment and background inspection checks.
The border guard can then complete the traveller border clearance and enrol the passenger into the EES.
The EES Border Kiosk interacts with Thales Gemalto Border Management System
Our kiosk is part of a complete system from Thales that includes manual border equipment, eGates, biometric scanning solutions, and mobile devices, all supported by our EES-compliant Border Management System.
• In 2017 the European Union adopted a new directive for the deployment of a biometric entry and exit registration system (EES) for Member States in order to strengthen the security of the Schengen Area and modernize border crossings.
• In less than one minute, third-country nationals will thus be pre-registered and have their identity verified at Thales kiosks deployed at French airports, train stations and ports.
• The expertise of Thales in the field of identity document verification and biometrics will deliver a secure solution while offering optimal user experience.
Thales has been selected by the French Ministry of the Interior to equip the country with several hundred EES-compliant Border Kiosks at various border crossing points.
The Thales Gemalto Border Kiosk will provide a self-service, intuitive and interactive terminal to guide travelers through every stage of identity registration and verification.
They will offer rapid registration for travelers, highly accurate identity verification, data management protection and advanced operational fluidity at border crossings.
