Biometric scanners at Swampy

Recommended Posts

Looks like the biometric scanners have been installed at Swampy. The procedure will involve:

 

1. Scan four fingers right hand

2. Scan four fingers left hand

3. Scan both thumbs

 

The scanners also seem quite small to accommodate the four fingers of large hands.

 

The procedure is far more complicated than Singapore or malarial.  Expect long delays.

Be prepared to take off shoes for foot print like baby scanning next.  Then cue tip or cotton swab of mouth for DNA sample. 

I hope they don't do intimate cavity searches in the same queue.

Retinal eye scans are next.  And you will get to stick your eyes into a laser scanner built by a company that was the low bidder on a government contract!  Had to use those at one installation I used to go to when I was in the US Air Force.  I conveniently and accidentally kept forgetting to get my "account" set up every time I was TDY there so I was able to enter by the normal manual security process.

Are you sure about the four fingers?

 

Cambodia and Malaysia require only the two index fingers to be scanned. 

Cambodia PoiPet land border wanted all 10 fingers in January.

Cambodia Binh Heip land border didn't bother at all this month.

Cambodia Phnom Penh airport didn't bother either.

Absolutely. Read the procedure while waiting for IO to stamp me out.

Thank you for the valuable information.

You said when they stamped you out? So at departure, not arrival?

How long did everything take?

Departing next week too at that airport.😎

presumed guilty on arrival... great tone setting....do foreigners have a higher percentage of criminiality than Thais...? I doubt it.

They want more tourists yet they have to get the joy of the last person's fingers scan sludge all on their fingers to be sure to pick up some awful airport bug...sure they will have no sanitiser to keep it hygienic...so it is just going to accumulate all day long with bugs with the sheer volume of human traffic...GREAT.

Are they still doing the facial recognition as well, or does the fingerprinting do away with that?

They also have them at Had Yai airport.

 

Came through there 31 March and it is all fingers and both thumbs - problem was the IO's had issues operating them - they only went in a couple of days before.

The ones in singapore are too small for my fingers. I need them to help me every time. But their staff speaks good english so it's no problem. Never met a good english speaking thai on their airports.
