This report describes two automated border crossing systems – RAPID in Portugal and
SmartGate in Australia- based on the use of electronic passports and facial image. The two
are pioneer systems operational in international airports in Portugal and Australia. In both
cases electronic passports are used as the biometric data storage medium and facial
recognition is the base for biometric matching.
