The gates are equipped with the system of automatic passenger identification, which is based on biometric data, face recognition system and iris scanner. While the older generation of gates required the biometric passport, for new gates a personal ID of the United Arab Emirates is sufficient. Smart gates can be used by people aged 18 and above. Travelers with children still will need to use traditional, manned gates, which often means queues.
Smart gates of the latest generation make life easier not only for the citizens of the United Arab Emirates, but also for foreigners, who were issued the local ID as well as for the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) residents, including Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Oman and the United Arab Emirates.
