The World Travel & Tourism Council is getting into a partnership with the International Border Management & Technologies Association (IBMATA) to market safer international travel through increased use of biometric technology. Through this partnership, they’re going to enhance its recently launched Seamless Traveler Journey program.
The main aim of the program is to make a travel landscape, wherein travelers won’t need to provide an equivalent information or passport multiple times. Instead, at every touchpoint of the travel, biometrics are going to be used for easier travel experience and further, will provide border services with greater security. Various biometric technology trials were announced by WTTC in October, as a neighborhood of its new program.
