Changes to the Passport Control at John F Kennedy International Airport in the US

Travellers to New York should be aware of the facial comparision technology which will be used shortly at the John F Kennedy Internation Airport in the US. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will insert this new system to speed up the handling of passport control.
This new technology will take a picture of the traveller and compare this with the ePassport. The picture will immediately be deleted unless CBP requests further enforcement or administrative actions.
This method will first be used for US-citizens who are returning to the US and citizens of the Visa Waiver Program/ESTA.
Even if immigration rules are becoming more complex and complicated, the ICUnet.AG will accompany you by every step of your international processes.
