E-gates, also known as electronic gates, are automated passport control systems that use biometric technology to authenticate the identity of passengers. These gates scan the passport and take a photo of the passenger’s face, which is then compared to the digital image stored in the passport’s microchip. If the information matches, the gate opens and the passenger is allowed to proceed. E-gates are often used to speed up the passport control process, particularly for passengers who are eligible for fast-track services or have biometric passports.
