US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has launched Simplified Arrival biometric facial comparison technology at Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) to streamline global travel.

The enhanced international process Simplified Arrival makes use of facial biometrics to automate the manual document checks that are needed for entry into the US.

The process ensures a secure, touchless travel experience to travellers while fulfilling a Congressional mandate to record the entry and exit of non-US citizens into the country biometrically.
