Punta Cana Airport Using SITA’s Automated Border Checks

Punta Cana International Airport, the busiest airport in the Dominican Republic, is using SITA’s Automated Border Control Gates to automate the border process for passengers from the US, Canada, Spain, UK, and France, as they leave the country.

SITA’s automated gates have shown improvements in passenger processing times, with passengers clearing the immigration checks in just seconds. SITA’s automated border control gates were installed in Terminal 1 in January 2018, followed by Terminal 2 in July 2018. The exit process involves capturing a live face image, which is then verified against the face biometric contained in their passport’s electronic chip.
