Australia is on track to replace passports with face recognition technology at airports in the next two or three years.

The planned transition is part of the Seamless Traveller initiative announced by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection in 2015 that aims to simplify air traveler processing. By using fingerprints or iris or facial structure recognition, the system will allow those entering or leaving Australia to avoid irritating and time-consuming paperwork.

>According to Immigration Minister Peter Dutton, the goal is to automate 90% of processing in the country’s international airports by 2020. Under the new “contactless” system, paper incoming passenger cards would be abolished and manned counters will be replaced by automatic electronic booths.
