Orlando International Airport is the first to offer international travellers from visa waiver countries the option to 'land, touch and go', using SITA's Automated Passport Control (APC) kiosks to self-process for faster US border clearance.
Ten biometric APC kiosks are now available for US citizens, Canadians and visa waiver travellers to complete their customs declaration form on a touch-screen, have their passports scanned and fingerprints and photograph taken prior to, and in preparation for, their interview with the US Customs and Border Protection Officer. The pre-processing these kiosks perform significantly reduces the time to complete the clearance process.
The kiosks are complimentary to use and do not require registration in advance; however, travelers must have previously entered the U.S. and have fingerprints on file with CBP. They are designed with the passenger experience in mind. They have intuitive, user-friendly interfaces, clear instructions and feedback, combined with quick proactive adjustments for each passenger including adjusting automatically to their height.
