All those entering Kuwait via land, air and sea borders will be fingerprinted. The Criminal Evidence Department’s fingerprint database currently has the capacity to store 12 million fingerprints, officials said. Kuwait media reports that the installation of automatic fingerprint devices at crossings has also been completed.
People will now enter the country only after being checked through advanced biometric systems like fingerprints, iris scans, facial recognition, electronic signatures etc. This system is designed to capture the information of persons who have entered the country. In 2011, a fingerprint scanning system was introduced at the airport. Later it was extended to land borders and ports.
It has been decided to implement such a system in order to prevent the entry of people involved in travel and crimes. It has been noticed that people who have been banned are re-entering the country many times. It was decided to strengthen the measures in the situation where such cases have increased. Last week, two people were arrested in this way. He had arrived on a new work visa. He was found during the fingerprint check at the airport. With this, Kuwait decided to include all 10 fingers in the test.
