Saudi Arabia to open biometric centres at airports
- Saudi Arabia: Wednesday, March 20 - 2013 at 07:54
The Saudi foreign ministry has signed contracts with international companies to set up biometric centres for providing visa services to prospective visitors to the kingdom, including pilgrims, Arab News has reported. The new system would help speed up entry procedures of visitors, especially for the millions of pilgrims, reducing their waiting times at airports and other entry points, said assistant foreign minister, prince Khaled bin Saud. "It will also enable authorities to know those foreigners who have been banned from entering the kingdom before issuing new visas as well as to identify fake visa applicants," he said.
