departure cards scrapped

Robyn Ironside - News Corp Australia Network


PASSENGER departure cards disappear from Australia’s international airports from today [1 July 2017] and passports could be the next travel documents to go.

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection is trialling contactless biometric authentication technology that would remove the need for a known traveller to present a physical passport in Australian airports.

The technology includes facial recognition cameras along with iris and fingerprint scanners to verify a traveller’s identity.
