Sofia Airport introduces immigration e-gates

Sofia Airport introduces immigration e-gates
The new e-gates at Sofia Airport can process passengers in as little as seven seconds.

Four immigration e-gates have been installed in Sofia Airport’s Terminal 2 to provide automated border clearance.

The e-gates, which make use of e-passports and facial recognition biometrics to speed-up the immigration process, can be used by passengers aged 18 or over from the European Union, European Economic Area and Switzerland.

The airport has reported that the new e-gates are recording an average processing time of 7-10 seconds per passenger.

Passengers who don’t have an e-passport or don’t wish to use the new e-gates can still use the traditional border clearance desks.
