Smart Gates to Replace Passport Officials by 2030

During this year’s Airport Security Middle East Conference, Mohammed Ahmed Al Marri, director general, General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs, Dubai, said that by 2030, smart gates at Dubai’s airports will replace passport official platforms with a view to reducing the human involvement factor, as part of Dubai’s 10X initiative.

Delivering the welcome address at the conference on the second day of this year’s Airports Show, Al Marri, stated, “We have created smart gates projects in an exclusive and modern way, and these now amount to about 122 smart gates.”

Al Marri also mentioned, “We have created a number of smart projects in Dubai’s airports, the latest of which is Next-Generation Departure project, which will enable passengers to complete their travel procedures in the least time possible.”

Dubai has set up its airports with a view to have them act as smart stations in their capacity as one of the most vital ports for the UAE, on the one hand, and the gateway to all people of the world, on the other.
