The New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has disclosed that Ghana's biggest international airport, the Kotoka International Airport will begin the use of eGates before the end of the year for check-in.

Dr Bawumia disclosed this while meeting with the Clergy in Cape Coast at the beginning of his tour of the region.

"In fact, before the end of this year, if you arrive in Ghana at Kotoka International Airport you don't have to go to an immigration officer. We are putting together the eGate, just put in your Ghana card and it will open for you.

“The eGate will come into work in Ghana before the end of the year.” Dr Bawumia assured. 

What is eGates 

eGates automatically processes passengers through passport control. 

They use facial recognition technology and your e-passport to check your identity. 

It is quick and secure.

Eligible passengers

You can use the eGates if you are 14 years or older and have an e-passport from an eligible country. 

Your passport is an e-passport if it has a small camera symbol at the bottom of the front cover.
