The automated border processing technology, Smartgate, is slated for a $7.9 million expansion over the next two years, as announced by home affairs and justice minister, Jason Clare.
Smartgate technology uses a combination of electronic information stored on e-passports and face recognition to perform customs and immigration checks.
The rollout of Smartgates was completed at all Australian international airports in July 2011, following initial trials of the technology in Sydney and Melbourne from November 2002 to June 2005. Brisbane International Airport led the commercial rollout of the technology.
