Traveling Troubles- and Document Verification, a Solution.

Just have a thought, you planned a tour to some really exciting place. Packed your bag with all the same excitement, thinking of all the beaches and fun time, go to immigration and, then yes! you are on the airplane and a single announcement was enough to shatter all that you planned. If you think passengers traveling with wrong documentation or incorrect information is a minor issue you need to give it another thought.

Traveling troubles- and document verification

According to a researched figure around 60,000 passengers have to turn back to their destination or transfer points by immigration authorities each year. If talk about the cost. It will cause a double penalty for airlines, they have to pay a fine that is $3,500 per passenger, in addition, airlines then have to fly the incorrect travelers back to their country of origin at their own expense, which takes a seat on a flight that could have sold to a fare-paying passenger.   

IATA’s research, identify the fact that one in every 25,000 international passenger boards a flight with the wrong documentation, which results in the fine for the airline. Even a small airline that board 10 million passengers per annum, which means they have to pay 400 fines annually, as per researched-based figures.   

Alleviating circumstances:

As compared to the ratio of old 2005 to 2009  the cases of document verification reduce to 2,300 reported by CBP, because of the better and advanced technology during the booking, security screening and boarding process. The number of violations reduced accordingly.

As violations decreases, fines are going up globally. Taking examples from countries, one European country currently introduced a penalty of  €10,000, South Africa has announced its intention to introduce such penalties too.

The United States of America collects around  $2.3 million from such penalties annually. Document identification requires airlines to take this matter very seriously. Because fines can impact both their bottom line and profit margins.  This is to notify that every violation does not mean a fine. CBP checks every case individually and takes into account,
  • Airlines previous performance.
  • Initiatives in conjunction with CBP that improves staff training.

In such alleviating circumstances, fines could be automatically downgraded to a lesser level. And even penalty can be imposed in less than 50% cases, with lesser than maximum fine.
