The land, air and sea borders in the country on Wednesday started using the central biometric system to verify the face prints, fingerprints and electronic signatures of all departing and arriving travelers – Kuwaiti, Gulf and other nationalities.

The General Department of Information Systems, in cooperation with the General Department of Criminal Evidence and Borders Security Sector, installed the biometric devices last week with the aim of creating the largest database for travelers, Al-Anba daily reported quoting sources.

Sources disclosed the system is connected with the borders of all Arab and Gulf countries to ease coordination and follow up in terms of security. Sources said this will prevent those wanted by law from forging documents, as their data will be revealed immediately through the system.
