DUBAI: The General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs-Dubai (GDRFA) on Wednesday launched on an experimental basis a smart corridor project, the first of its kind in the world, at Dubai International Airport Terminal 3 for business and first class departures.

 
The project employs artificial intelligence and is made in the UAE under the auspices of Emaratech, GDRFA's right arm.
 
The idea of this unique project was launched 4 years ago and the project is still in the experimental stage but would be constantly developed so as to operate most optimally and have more impressive services in future, said Major General Mohammed Ahmed Al Marri, Director General of GDRFA.
 
The project uses the data of passengers and self-learning techniques to ease and expedite their movement across the passport control area at the airport without the need to use any travel documents including passports, ID cards or boarding passes, as is the case with smart gates, he added.
 
Al Marri explained that passengers have to bring their passports with them and make sure they are valid for more than 6 months as these passports have to be used in the destination countries.
 
He pointed out that the GDRFA aims to develop a system that would reduce the time of immigration process for passengers, meet their satisfaction and create a remarkable travel experience.
 
The project is a result of the participation in the Dubai Future Accelerators, launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to provide services using the latest high quality technologies, he said.
 
The project comes in implementation of the X 10 initiative, which aims for Dubai to be 10 years ahead of the world in terms of providing smart services for the happiness of customers, be they citizens, residents or visitors.
