Smart Tunnel trial launched at DXB
If you’re travelling through Dubai International Airport’s Terminal 3 on a business or first class ticket, you can now go through passport control without your passport.
It’s as the pilot phase for the Smart Tunnel launched on Wednesday.
The world’s first system will enable travellers to complete passport procedures in as little as 15 seconds, without the need for human interaction or the stamping of their passport as it uses a biometric recognition system to identify the passengers.
It’s the latest step in the implementation of advanced technology at DXB, which already features smart-gates that only require a passenger’s passport or Emirates ID to be scanned.
