Pedestrian queues at the border this evening were the worst they’ve been this summer as Spanish border authorities have begun testing the new passport e-gates during peak queueing times.
The new electronic gates are part of Spain’s commitment to reduce queues following the European Commission’s recommendations last year. Pedestrians are requested to scan EU Compliant electronic passports or ID cards, their fingerprints, and use face recognition technology.
Sources have told GBC the Spanish authorities have been testing the gates for the last few days, but today they’re being tested at peak times for pedestrians, leading to tailbacks which have reached back to the former airport terminal.
Pedestrians have been reporting queues of up to an hour to cross the frontier.
