Dubai airport activates e-gate service for Emirates ID holders

DUBAI, July 25, 2016

Passengers holding an Emirates ID can now move through the airport much quicker by using their card at the electronic gates (e-Gates) at the arrival wing of Dubai International Airport's Terminal 3, said a report.

The General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) has completed the activation of e-Gate service through the use of the Emirates ID, a service which requires no prior registration, said a report in Gulf News.

The service will soon be activated at Terminals one and two shortly, meaning smooth entry for all travellers.

Dubai International Airport was the first in the region to implement the e-Gate system in 2002, and the third airport in the world to do so. The e-Gate system reads passport information and captures biometric data, including facial recognition, in 12 to 14 seconds. All these procedures are completed while maintaining a high-level accuracy and security standards, the report said.
