Person interacting with an Immigration officer.


ST. JOHN’S, Antigua--The Cabinet invited managers of the Antigua and Barbuda Airport Authority (ABAA), the Immigration Department and the information technology (IT) specialists that manage the systems that allow for a smooth flow of passengers arriving and departing V.C. Bird International Airport, for discussions regarding processing speed for passengers.

  The ability of the Immigration Department to deliver the full panoply of electronic services is not yet complete.

  The ministers responsible for aviation and for IT have been collaborating to produce a system to ensure the successes of the e-system.

  They have agreed to address:

* Completing the Electronic E.D. card (that will remove the need for the passenger to fill in the data that appear on the printed version of the card).

* Removing the face-to-face contact now required during the entry exercise.

* Placing kiosks in the arrival lounge to satisfy inbound passengers.

* Speeding-up the slower existing system for arriving and departing passengers, using the upgraded electronic system. ~ Antigua News Room ~
