Migration installs new entry and departure systems at SDQ
The Migration Agency (DGM) is installing new systems in order to check passengers’ documents at the Las Americas International Airport (SDQ). This move is aimed at facilitating the entry of passengers into the country and strengthening controls at both national and international levels. The DGM says that a South Korean company is installing the new system that includes software, cameras and the automated entry and departure at the airport.
The new equipment means that travelers will not necessarily have to interact directly with Migration officers because their data will be registered in the DGM’s biometric database, which automates exit and entry. The machines are being installed in the Migration areas for arrivals and departures at the Las Americas airport and the same equipment will also be installed at other airports throughout the country.
A DGM spokesperson said that this was the same equipment being used in many of the major airports throughout the developed world.
