The Sri Lanka Immigration and Emigration Department has upgraded security technologies at Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) through a project funded by the UK Government.

The security upgrade is part of a border management project initiated by the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

BIA installed full-page passport readers to capture images of passports during the airport security screening process.

The new system is equipped with advanced photo verification technology and can match the holder’s photo in the data-page to the photograph stored in the passport chip.

It will also provide electronic confirmation of the passport’s authenticity, as well as identifying possible tampering and forgeries to the passport, according to colombopage.com.

In addition to the electronic passenger alert list, the referral mechanism has been modified with an integrated module and a CCTV monitoring system has been installed.
