Brisbane Airport claims to be leading the way with the trial of an innovative Digital Departure Card (DDC) for international passengers from Australia and other countries that have this exit requirement.
It says the innovation removes the age old necessity of handwriting the official ‘outgoing passenger card’ (Departure Card) required for immigration purposes.
Developed in-house with support from a number of partners, the new DDC is built within the scope of the airport’s popular mobile App, giving passengers the ability to enter and save personal information for the departure card onto their mobile device prior to their arrival at the airport.
This information is converted into a QR code that is scanned and printed at bespoke kiosks located in the International Terminal.
The personalised and custom printed card is then signed by the passenger and collected by Customs officers during the normal departure process.
Passengers are also able to save their profiles (as well as the profiles of other family members with permission) within the app so that they do not have to complete their personal information every time they travel internationally from Brisbane. www.bne.com.au
