Kuwait: Biometric system to be implemented at all ports in early 2023

The Ministry of Interior will start implementing the iris, face, hand scanning and electronic signature procedures at Kuwait International Airport and the borders early next year in a bid to prevent deportees, including those involved in forgery, from returning to the country.

The procedures mentioned above will take effect upon completion of the supply, installation and testing of devices.

Borders, Forensic Evidence and Information Systems departments are currently coordinating their efforts to start the operation of these advanced devices; affirming the devices have high-efficiency rates and are accredited in most airports and borders throughout the world.
