What do I need to know to use the EasyPASS border control system?

Using EasyPASS is very simple: place the electronic passport on the document reader with the passport photo page facing downwards. EasyPASS then scans the data in the document and afterwards opens the entry barrier. For face recognition you look straight into the digital mirror which is located in the EasyPASS exit door. If you are wearing a hat or sunglasses, please remove them beforehand. Changes in appearance, for example using heavy make-up or wearing thick-rimmed glasses, may affect face recognition.

As a third-country national you will see a stamp symbol after face recognition. You will proceed to the police officer behind the eGate who will stamp your passport.
