Vision-Box and SEF expand Automated Border Control to Third Country Nationals at Lisbon International Airport

Vision-Box and SEF - the Portuguese Immigration and Borders Service - are pleased to announce the expansion of RAPID, a solution designed for Automated Identification of Passengers Holding Electronic Travel Documents.

Already in use by EU, EEA (European Economic Area) and Swiss citizens at Lisbon International Airport, the pioneering self-service face recognition border clearance system, rebranded RAPID4ALL, is now available for citizens of nine additional countries outside of the European Union: Australia, Brazil, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, United States, and Venezuela.

"This does not mean less security", said Lisbon Borders Director Luis Quelhas. "On the contrary, it means an augmented level of security. SEF controls the Entry and Exit of passengers in our airports in the same manner, with the same rigor, and with the same high level of security. We modernized, we simplified, while maintaining the same level of security".
