What is EasyPASS?
The border control system at a glance
Whether you are travelling to a business meeting, for a city break or on a beach holiday: more and more people are travelling by plane. To respond to this challenge, EasyPASS supports the Federal Police officers working in border control. The automated border control system verifies the identity of the traveller as well as the validity and authenticity of their electronic travel document and has many advantages: it is very secure, easy to operate, and speeds up border crossings. EasyPASS users can use additional lanes (eGates) at the German airports that handle the highest volumes of passengers and so can not only shorten their own waiting time, but also that of other passengers.
This free of charge and voluntary service is an important component of integrated border management in Europe. The EU supports the new control system with funds from the European External Borders Fund.
