Long tails of queues, languid expectation and hassle with the filling of incomprehensible forms, the harsh expressions of the faces of the staff, tired of the constantly pouring human stream.
It is difficult to imagine the worst “business card” of the country. Alas, often this is our reality. Who did not encounter this, when arriving and having arrived in our country?! At the airports of the queue-the phenomenon is so ordinary that it is somehow difficult to imagine that everything can change. And the tails of the queues will be reduced to a minimum, and the passage of all procedures related to the verification and compilation of the necessary forms will accelerate to the maximum. I can’t believe it? Well, in vain.
In such a department as Rosgranitsa, the problem of equipment of checkpoints with new specialized equipment undertook to solve comprehensively and purposefully. To simplify the registration procedure, a maximum of possible. Already now 30 international airports out of 79 available are equipped with the necessary modern equipment. And in ten points it became possible to automatically process passport data on registration of migration cards and their subsequent printouts. The process went, and these are only the first steps in the direction that the Federal Agency also intends to withstand seriously and for a long time, as part of the implementation of the program to simplify the design of exit (entry) documents.
What exactly will change, what pleasant innovations will expect passengers who landed in our vast Motherland? The first – the smiles of employees of the border service – this is an undoubted and main bonus for each, tired of a long flight. The agency is seriously dealing with advanced training and training of personnel. And the second is to replace the fountain burns and heavy manual work on the removal of the necessary signs in tight cells, very smart and fast automated systems will come. They will not wear glasses so as not to miss the filling, and then nervously kow the spoiled form. They are a scanner, a computer and a printer – connected to the corresponding database, will do everything clearly and accurately for each tourist and give him a ready -made migration map form.
Maybe this, of course, is a trifle, if you look on a global scale. But in total, such pleasant little things, folding into a mosaic of a favorable picture, make up such a beautiful concept as the image of the country. And this is already a large -scale and significant matter: in political terms and in terms of economic development. Because it implies investment attractiveness, and the development of tourism, and the expansion and strengthening of all kinds of friendly ties.
The following point of the program is automation of the passport control system. As a result of the modernization, the employee will only have to learn how to use the capabilities of the electronic mind correctly, and manually – just put a mark on the border crossing and print.
