Dubai's Naturalization & Residency Administration (DNRD) plans to introduce an innovative system of automated entry and exit gates at Dubai International Airport to regulate the process of arrivals and departures.
The new system, which is expected to go live at the airport from the middle of this month, leverages best of breed technologies to ensure greater accuracy and further development of internal human resources, a statement said.
The electronic gates utilise the concepts of smart card identification and finger print identification to automate the registration process.
The information system that manages the whole process including the electronic gate control, fingerprints and card issue has been completely devised and developed in-house by the IT department at the DNRD.
The electronic gates will be introduced in tandem with the existing manual ones, giving travellers the option to choose either form of entry or exit.
