Australia new border clearance system
The Australian Customs and Border Protection Service (ACBPS) has announced that the people entering the country should have their biometric data scanned via a new border clearance system which will be deployed very soon. 

Supporting biometric eGates, the new biometric clearance system will be stationed to process entrants' at all Australian airports and sea ports. Customs officers will use a console to remotely monitor and control the eGates. The new clearance system will allow the planning and scheduling of customs officers and resources to manage the border clearance process for all individuals entering and exiting the country.

To run clearance duties successfully at all airports, pleasure craft, cruise ship terminals and on commercial vessels, Customs officers will be provided with handheld devices and geographical information systems. 

The new system is incorporated with case management features and integrated process to perform specific tasks such as issuing visas and passports, planning trip journeys, border processing and intrusions. 

The ACBPS also said that is planning to improve its identity management system to make sure that the border control agencies can take precise photocopies of entrants at the time of customs process.

As Australia is observing quick growth in its tourism industry and with Customs forecasting the visitors to increase from current 30 million per year to 50 million by 2023 the new border clearance system is being introduced.
