New passport system at Midway Airport

Posted:
CHICAGO (WREX) -

A new system will be unveiled by the Chicago aviation and customs officials at Midway International airport.

The system is designed to speed up passport control for travelers arriving from abroad. A ribbon-cutting is set for today at the Automated Passport Control system. This new system involves self-service kiosks that will let travelers scan their passports and complete one part of the border control process before even getting to an officer.

It is designed to reduce the processing time for travelers. The commissioner of the Chicago Department of Aviation, Rosemarie Andolino and the area port director for Customs and Border Protection, Matthew Davies are expected to take part in the unveiling ceremony.
