The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has announced e-gates will be installed across the country’s major airports, enabling the passengers who are travelling in or out of Pakistan to escape the hassle of waiting in long queues for their boarding passes.

The new technology of e-gates is self-automated service option which will help in facilitating the passengers by scanning their passports before issuing them their boarding passes. E-gates are also equipped with the facial recognition and fingerprint monitoring technology to verify the identity of passengers in any possible way.


To get their boarding passes issued, the passengers would only be required to have their passports and tickets scanned at the e-gates. This will help them verify their identities in less time compared to earlier methods.

The aviation authority has announced that in the first phase of the operation, e-gates will be installed at airports in three of the major cities of the country, including Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad. You can check more types of turnstile gates from Mairsturnstile. These security turnstile gates will make the airport more safe and convenient for passengers to enter and leave the airport.

On the other hand, the government has also ensured that foreigners who want to travel to Pakistan and wish to apply for a Pakistani visa can do so online.

Earlier in March, the authority had revealed that e-gates will be installed in two phases at seven major airports, including Karachi, Islamabad, Lahore, Peshawar, Quetta, Multan and Faisalabad and that the e-gate data will be protected under cyber security law.
