Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) Global Guidance for Meeting Participants


Due to the enhanced level of travel restrictions and uncertainty in the short term caused by COVID-19, the International Civil Aviation Organization has decided to reschedule the TRIP2020 event to a later date (September 29 – October 2,2020). We look forward to seeing you in Montréal.


Game-changing Technologies Driving Seamless Border Management 
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) will hold its sixteenth
Traveller Identification Programme Symposium (TRIP2020) from 29 to 30 September 2020 at
the ICAO Headquarters in Montréal, Canada. The Symposium is a world-class forum for the
exchange of information on all aspects of traveller identification management and the ICAO
Traveller Identification Programme (TRIP) Strategy. Discussions at this year’s Symposium will
focus on the need for innovative technologies in addressing border control challenges, a key
point of the ICAO TRIP Strategy. The theme will be: “Game-changing Technologies Driving
Seamless Border Management”.


TRIP2020 will be followed by the first joint ICAO/International Criminal Police Organization
(INTERPOL) Passenger Data Exchange Forum from 1 to 2 October 2020.
In line with United Nations Security Council Resolutions 2178 (2014) and 2396 (2017) which
reaffirm the importance of advance passenger information (API) and passenger name record
(PNR) data systems for an efficient and secure border control management to combat terrorism,
the ICAO/INTERPOL Passenger Data Exchange Forum will share strategies and provide
additional best practices, procedures, specifications and technical mechanisms related to
implementation modalities for API and PNR data systems.
