Enhanced passport control at Schengen borders
The European border control agencies will soon increase the number of passport and visa checks at its outside borders due to new regulations. Also the Netherlands will participate in this pan-European initiative.
Until now travelers with an EU-passport were randomly checked, which could be only visual. The new regulation requires interfaces with national and international detection systems.
HSB has supplied the Border Control Solution which enables Dutch border control agencies to check travel documents to enter the Schengen countries with multiple background checks. This includes biometric verification against the central EU-VIS database. Also the authenticity of travel documents is checked.
