New biometrics in US airports

WASHINGTON D.C. – The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced that upgraded biometric technology is in place at major U.S. ports of entry, and most international visitors should expect to use the new technology when they enter the United States. DHS’s US-VISIT program began upgrading its biometric technology from a two- to a 10-fingerprint collection standard in 2007 to make the entry process faster and more accurate, enabling DHS officials to focus their attention on people who may pose a risk to the United States. It said “The 10 fingerprint upgrade makes this proven system even more efficient and enhances the security of our nation.”
