Passengers can now skip the queues at passport control and use their Emirates ID card to access the e-Gate system if they’re arriving at Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport.

Dubai International Airport was the first in the region to implement the e-Gate system in 2002, and the third airport in the world to do so.

The e-Gate system reads passport information and captures biometric data, including facial recognition, in 12 to 14 seconds. All these procedures are completed while maintaining a high-level of accuracy and security standards.
