Fingerprint identification equipment to be installed at Suvarnabhumi Airport

Thursday, September 28th, 2006

The Immigration Bureau plans to install fingerprint identification equipment at Suvarnabhumi Airport within the next two months.

“Immigration procedures at Suvarnabhumi are very fast. It takes only 20 seconds for the average passenger. It will be even faster when we finish installing the fingerprint identification units,” said Police Lieutenant General Suwat Tumrongsriskul, Immigration Bureau Commissioner, who inspected the new airport Friday during its first day of full commercial service.

In addition to fingerprint scanning equipment, immigration police plan to install additional electronic passport control technology, which they hope will also be in place before the end of November.

Customs inspections speedy service at Suvarnabhumi Airport

Thursday, September 7th, 2006

Customs Department has adjusted procedures at Suvarnabhumi Airport to ensure faster service.

Paisal Chuenjit, director of the Passenger Processing Division at Suvarnabhumi Airport’s Customs Bureau, said a total of 300 customs officials will service the new airport when it opens later this month, up from 210 at Bangkok International Airport (Don Muang).

Officials will be divided into four shifts. There will be 20 counters for travelers to declare goods, each equipped with an X-ray machine.

Paisal revealed that a new data checking system will be implemented. Passenger and flight information will be forwarded to the bureau before an aircraft arrives. Officials hope this system quickens the declaration of goods at customs and immigration procedures.
