Border control and customs processes may need to be temporarily revised to increase physical distancing.
Where equipment already exists, the use of automated border control (ABC) equipment, digital passenger identification (biometrics) as well as technology (thermal screening) could serve as an additional health screening measure and could speed up the immigration process, with the objective of reducing queuing and minimizing contact between border officials and passengers.
Furthermore, some governments are requiring passengers to complete health declarations or health attestations before departure or on arrival as an initial assessment measure, which could be used to identify passengers that might need a secondary assessment.
Some governments are implementing a health declaration solution that
can be set-up on a web portal. For those States that already have a platform to
collect visa and electronic travel authorization information they could be
customized to accommodate the additional information needed.
