The airport scanner in Orlando doesn’t just scan your passport.
It also uses your fingerprint and photo ID to match your passport to your travel record.
That’s a significant upgrade over the old system, which used the fingerprints and photo IDs of the person who scanned your passport, and the system was plagued with security problems that resulted in an increased risk of fraud.
The new system, however, has a few advantages over the older one.
First, you don’t have to wait until your passport is scanned.
You can scan it immediately if you need to change your travel itinerary.
The scanner is activated at the airport, not at the border.
You don’t need to enter your passport into the system if you already have one.
Second, it doesn’t require a passport in hand.
The machine also doesn’t need your fingerprint or photo ID when you’re boarding your plane.
Instead, you’ll be scanned at the gate.
Finally, if you are a U.S. citizen, you won’t need a visa to fly.
That means you can stay in the U.A.E. without having to get a visa in order to fly to any other country in the world.
