E-Gates at Rome Fiumicino airport
Rome Fiumicino airport was the first airport in Italy to have installed E-Gates, or digital gates for passport control in the case of international flights.
E-Gates allow you to halve the time for document verification. In fact, once the traveler arrives at the automatic gate, all he has to do is place his passport on a scanner, after which the image of his face will be acquired and compared with the one stored in the passport chip.
In most cases the gate will open after a few seconds, but if for some reason problems arise, it will be sufficient to go to the traditional gates.
In order to use the Egates you must have an electronic passport (the one with a microchip on the cover) and be at least 14 years old, so they cannot be used if you are traveling with children.
