  • The finger for foreigners, a facial for Japanese

    I think I'd rather have the finger. A facial sounds rather messy.

    Facial ID system mulled to speed up airport immigration

    The Justice Ministry is considering introducing a facial identification system at airports to automate and speed up immigration procedures, officials said Saturday.
    The ministry will begin test demonstrations as early as this summer. According to the plan, the system first would be used for Japanese travelers, while authorities continue to fingerprint foreign nationals as part of counterterrorism efforts, they said.

    I dunno. I'm going for the facial. Although..does Narita really need speeding up?! It's never taken me more than about 20 minutes between the plane landing and leaving the terminal.
    Compare that to Toronto.
    "Huh? You want your SUITCASE? Soory. We maybe sent that to Mongoolia..."

      If we have to stick our face in a pad of red ink, I'm going for the finger...

        blatant immigration control move

        i wonder who put this in motion, would be interesting if he were to be exposed for having a filipino side family.

          Bet you can get a complimentary pack of cigarettes with that machine as well.
