Which data is captured by the automated border control system?

As with manual border checks, the document reader will read only those data from a travel document needed to

  • check the eligibility of the holder to use the system (EU/EEA/CH, USA and Hong Kong citizens, aged 18 or above, valid electronic travel document);
  • check the information against police databases in accordance with the Schengen Borders Code; and
  • compare the live image with the biometric passport photograph stored on the chip.

No personal data is stored during the EasyPASS border control process.

During registration with EasyPASS-RTP the personal and passport information of the applicant will be recorded.
