Passport card could overturn archaic border control processes

Borderpol : 20 October, 2008  (Technical Article)
Borderpol is calling for radical improvements to international travel procedures at border control points with the use of International Passport Cards
Borderpol is calling for the development and implementation of an International Passport
Card to augment national passports to radically improve cross border security and facilitate legitimate trade and travel.

Today's passport and travel identification systems are unable to cope with the demands of 21st century international traffic management. Over the past five years the advancement of various national and regional systems to facilitate enforcement and trade has grown without any interoperability or any measureable improvement in the management of international traffic. With time wasting queues at airports and border crossings, travel, trade and tourism are being negatively affected. International cooperation in this area has become fractured and compartmentalized. It's time that likeminded governments and industry take a fresh approach and make travel and trade practices efficient again.

A new Borderpol policy argues that this approach must centre on the creation of a global initiative to be called the 'International Passport Card' which will make it possible to create dramatically more efficient and effective border clearance systems.

IPC would rely on Borderpol as a third-party identification provider that would act as a clearing house for the information required by likeminded states for the border crossing processing of international travellers.

Borderpol would verify that travellers presenting an IPC are who they say they are. This way, government agencies worldwide could rely on a new and trustworthy system of authenticated personal identification.

Borderpol notes that the IPC card would have to be supported by individuals, the travel and trade industry as well as likeminded governments. This will demand that travellers be made aware of the value of the IPC and that the necessary legislative framework is developed by countries to support its implementation.
