US Visit Exit Kiosks

Mon May 23, 2005 2:31 am

While transitting PHL a few weeks ago, on my way home to Grenada, I noticed these US VISIT exit kiosks. Basically you have scan your visa, do you fingerpirnting and look into the camera for the picture. Looks pretty simple, but it was in the middle of concourse A West, and no one was doing it, so I figured I will not let my curiosity get the better of me. BUt are really planning to make this the norm? They will have to get alot more kiosks though, cause the lines might be a little crazy. Some people might a problem getting it to work, you know with the fingerpirntring etc.

Anyone else notice this in PHL or any other airport?
Anyone tried it?
There is something special about planes....

It's a new thing the DHS is doing to try to make it easier for visitors from other countries to enter the country. They've got them all over Concourse E and parts of Concourse D @ ATL.
