New passport scanners and border control uniforms


Border control agents (formerly known as passport control staff) at Glasgow Airport now have new-style passport scanners and new uniforms. The uniforms look nice, but the scanners will lead to longer queues.

The new passport scanners will be used to prevent people from using a false identity to enter the country. They are being rolled out at airports across the UK mean more detailed document checks will be carried out. Rather than a quick flick of your passport, the passport photo is scanned and compared to an image from a central database - and to you as you stand in front of them.

Staff will have access to a UK 'watch list', which includes details of known criminals and immigration offenders. As you can imaging, this takes much longer than the old method, and has lead to long delays for passengers at other airports.

Passengers will also find it easier to identify the 45-strong Border control team at Glasgow Airport, as they are now wearing new dark blue uniforms with a distinctive badge. This creates a 'highly visible presence,' a spokesman said.
