    These are now live and available at MCO!

    New automation at Orlando International Airport (MCO) will expedite international arrival processing in 2014. Ten new high-tech digital security kiosks are installed and being tested by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in the international arrivals area at MCO. Orlando International is the nationís pilot site for this new generation of kiosks which allows international passengers from visa waiver countries to self-process into the United States.

    The new kiosks will partially automate the inspection process for persons entering the United States. The system will collect the passengersí passport and flight information, declaration data, scan fingerprints, take a photo and issue a receipt to the passenger. The passenger then presents their passport and receipt to a CBP officer for verification. The whole process should take under two minutes. The kiosks are complimentary to use and do not require registration in advance; however, passengers must have previously entered the U.S. and have fingerprints on file with CB

    That doesn't sound like a lot of machines to me. I hope they leave the traditional way open as well.

    Can you imagine 2 flights arriving at the same time with just 10 kiosks, it doesn't bear thinking about. I know its a pilot so hopefully more will be added if the pilot is a success.









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......

    The traditional way is still open yep and results on the terminals at the MOMENT are that theyre having trouble getting people to even try them but that will change.

    Personally I'm all for this.

    Immigration at Orlando has improved in terms of niceness 200% since the mid 2000s. I've gone from worrying about holding my tongue to having a bit of a joke and knowing it'll be ok unless I mention something awful. The staff there are much nicer but it still takes an age to do something which is SO easily automated.
