Airports introduce passport scanners

Airports operator Hermes on Tuesday introduced 74 interactive kiosks to
facilitate passport control by allowing travelers to use a self-service option
reducing overall processing time.

In total, 74 BorderXpress kiosks have been installed at the two airports in the
Republic 44 in Larnaca and 30 in Paphos.

Using the BorderXpress kiosks, passengers will scan their travel documents,

We used it on Tuesday, did it save time, No.


Had staff helping, but scanner would not work for me even with a member of
staff actually doing it for me. Had to go to another machine, that worked at a third attempt.
After I got my piece of paper or receipt still had to show paper and passport to immigration who checked all the details. The only difference was the immigration guy was not in the booth.

So it actually needs more staff, there were 3 members of staff helping at the machines and
extra staff at immigration other than those in the booths which were all in use.

It seemed a total disaster at Gatwick in the beginning. Now though, with everyone more familiar, it's quite a slick process. Hopefully that's how it will go here............... maybe.

Scanning an e-passport then handing in the receipt issued to a human being has been a fairly common practice at some airports for years. It works well for them, and does speed things up considerably. I imagine once the staff here get used to the 'ticket' format things will speed up.
