Regula has announced that the Aruban Immigration Authority is now using its Regula 7034M document readers to facilitate the process of passport checks at border control.

According to the company, using this system, travelers can obtain online entry permission before flying to Aruba.

This procedure also allows the Aruban authorities to gather necessary data beforehand, permitting travelers to enjoy smooth and fast document processing at border control while maintaining a high level of security.

Improved border control

Regula says that the use of Regula 7034M means that the Aruban authorities can instantly scan a passport page and automatically check major security features in white, infrared, ultraviolet and coaxial lights.

The solution’s advanced optical character recognition, trained to work with identity documents, recognizes all sorts of data, including engraved and embossed text.

Smart algorithms instantly read data from barcodes and machine-readable zones, as well as RFID chips.

By leveraging these advanced technologies, the Aruban authorities have succeeded in decreasing document verification time at border crossings by 300%, the company highlights.

Now, it takes only ten seconds to process a passport.

Identity verification

“As a company with over 30 years of experience developing identity verification hardware and software, we always welcome the opportunity to participate in projects that require complete solutions for border management,” said Arif Mamedov, President and CEO at Regula Forensics, Inc.

“This gives us a chance not only to contribute our accumulated knowledge, but also to learn and gather more information to develop future products.

“Aruba is an example of a unique system that, on the one hand, makes visitors feel welcome by providing them with fast and less stressful border crossing and, on the other hand, maintains a solid system of checking and verification.”
