Orlando Airport New Kiosks Speed Up Customs

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Officials at Orlando International Airport are hoping some new kiosks will allow international visitors to land, touch and go.

The biometric kiosks will let international travelers speed up their arrival process by allowing them to complete customs declaration forms on touch-screens. The kiosks also record passports, fingerprints and facial images.

Orlando International Airport is the first U.S. airport to have the kiosks.

International travelers must come from a country where visas aren’t required to enter the United States and also must be approved by the Electronic System for Travel Authorization program.
