Australia decks up to introduce eGates

The Australian immigration department is geared up to introduce eGates at eight major international airports in Australia. This decision, which has been welcomed by the immigration circles, will come into force from 2015.

While paying more attention to the traveler interactions, the eGate technology, as briefed to the media by the immigration minister Scott Morrison, would put a check to the terrorism activities and would even act towards boosting the counterterrorism capacity.

Speaking more on the same, Morrison said that eGate technology is one of the major investments in the border management.  This technology would even aim at less manual intervention, intelligence gathering and targeting activity, added the immigration minister.

He has even mentioned that there had been an increase in the number of people visiting Australia and it was important for their officers to ensure access to the best tools and technology.
