A new Biometrics System is currently being installed and tested at the Phuket International Airport before going live this July.

 

The biometrics system, a machine for personal facial identification and finger prints is being installed and tested at the Phuket international Airport today. The system is being installed at 16 airports around Thailand and is about 70% completed.

 

Deputy police spokesman Kritsana Pattanacharoen says, “The system will be ready to use from July 1 this year where there will be more than 2,000 machine installed at Immigration checkpoints around Thailand.”

They're cheap webcams and the current system is nothing more than a check to make sure the same person is leaving who arrived, AFAIK.

 

Some countries have the fingerprint scanner before you deal with the Immigration Officers as a time-saver but I doubt we'll see that here.

Same type of system has been in use now in Abu Dhabi for the past several years. System is a pleasure to use and makes the commute to/from work a walk in the park. Less than 1 minute on arrivals and on departures in AUH. It’s also a great system to control those who may be trying to hideout in T’land.

Yup. For what they need here a scan of all 10 fingers like shown on pics?

1 finger each hand is enough like in malaysia.

No more TM6 would be perfect but i not believe it before i see it.

So all this will slow down the process to 3-4 min each pax.

Anyone think this will make immigration any faster for foreigners, or is this just a nice earner for some?  Be nice if now IO's were told to just stamp passports and not look at every passport and study the pages for 5 minutes before stamping.

A step in the right direction at least.

How dare you post here with a positive comment- this thread is for people who are not in Phuket and will not be affected by this in any way. Their sole purpose in life is to knock and criticize any attempts to improve things.

 

Go and sit in the corner for ten minutes. 😂
