Identity Verification for Secure Borders
HID Global biometric solutions for border enforcement have been deployed in countries around the world to allow immigration officers to enroll and facilitate foreign nationals crossing back and forth between borders. The advanced access control technology accurately recognizes lawful immigrants, immediately identifies people who try to gain unlawful entry or who have criminal records, and easily enrolls first-time asylum seekers for refugee management. The biometric software also recognizes previous asylum seekers so that they may be sent back to their asylum country of origin.
Biometric readers and scanners connect to software from the FBI’s automated fingerprint identification system (AFIS) database to exclude individuals on No Fly lists and individuals with a criminal history. The technology has also been widely deployed for international systems like Global Entry or Trusted Traveler where citizens can undergo a prescreen security clearance that allows a faster, more convenient path to re-enter their home country.
