High Tech Biometric Testing at Otay Mesa


CBP announced that it will begin testing new biometric technology at the Otay Mesa pedestrian crossing. The project will be deployed in two phases. Starting today, certain non-U.S. citizens entering the United States in the pedestrian lanes will utilize new kiosks equipped with biometric capture technology to provide a facial photograph and iris images. The second phase of testing will begin in February 2016, with everyone departing the United States providing biographic data similar to the information provided when departing by air. Certain non-U.S. citizens will also provide their biometrics upon departure during this phase. The testing will run through June 2016.
