In October 2019, Frontex ‒ together with the Border Service of Portugal (SEF) and the Lisbon Airport Authority (ANA) ‒ tested new technologies for border control at Lisbon airport to see whether biometric solutions can decrease the waiting time at borders. The technology uses face recognition and touchless scanning of fingerprints with the aim of allowing passengers to pass through border checks without taking out their passports or other documents. The current trial covers EU citizens leaving the Schengen Area.
