Indian Consuls Surprising OCIs, Where OCIs are Planning to Surprise Their Families

By alexatravel on December 14, 2019 Alexa Travel

It has been reported that who have not renewed their OCIs Card documents after having updated their passport were dismissed off-boarding permission for their flights to India.

With the urge of NRIs and OCIs to celebrate Christmas eve and New year with their families, they look back to plan their occasion on their landmark India, whereas the Government has already planned something different for them.

With the new amendment to The Citizenship Act, 1955 the Government of India has recently issued an order to all the Indian consuls worldwide to deny the boarding of people to India who has not updated their OCI cards with the renewal of their passports. The airlines with which usually most passengers are dealing with issues around these regulations are Air India and Qatar Airways.

After hours of intense debate, the Lok Sabha passed The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2019 on Monday (December 2). The same amount of chaos the bill caused among the Lok Sabha members during the passing of bill is now being caused among the OCIs residing outside India who wish to celebrate their new year back in India. Reports associated with denial of boarding to be able to foreign citizens of Indian native origin because of not necessarily complying with the innovative rules of OCI card validity have been observed in the news given that November.

Similar cases of many OCIs Cardholders who’ve failed to update their OCI cards and update their passports have been recently discerned in major airports in Unified States, New Zealand and Singapore Additionally, several OCI holders who’ve been traveling to India from Auckland, Christchurch, and Wellington throughout New Zealand have furthermore been struggling due to be able to same reasons.

Most of the people who’ve faced, or maybe are facing the problem of boarding have likely been due to lack of the updates of the new rules brought in by the Government of India. Also, visitors and people in Sweden and various other airports are left stranded in result of this bill.

Thus, Indian consulates worldwide have issued a travel advisory for OCI cardholders regarding the Indian Government’s strict enforcement of the new OCI validity rules and relating to airlines’ rigid checks at the time of check-in.

The government requires individuals below the age of 20 years to have their OCI cards reissued, every time their passports are renewed. Whereas, individuals between 21 to 50 years of age have no compulsion of renewing their OCI cards, however, they are required to carry their old passports in addition to their current/renewed passports.

BIOMETRICS AT AIRPORT

By alexatravel on December 6, 2019 Alexa Travel

BIOMETRICS AT AIRPORT

Here’s everything you need to know about: BIOMETRICS AT AIRPORT waiting to board the flight? “Say cheeeeseseee” to the camera. Yeah.

The future is here. We have all been through the tiresome experience of waiting in long lines for a security check to get aboard the plane witnessed people forgetting their identification proofs. But …. Cheer now!!! Because all this is the thing of the past and This time Travel fly deals has come to you with a brightening news of the advancement in security system with the installation of biometric system at airports which will make the waiting in long queues a bygone by speeding up the process of check-in. So, let’s dive into the new era of airport security and get along with what it unfolds.

The amazingly new biometric systems launched by SITA (Société Internationale de Télécommunications Aéronautiques) smart path continuing at several airports around the world initiating with three continents incorporating14 Korean domestic airports, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International, LAX, and JFK among 20 US airports and Bengaluru International Airport of India. In view of the tremendous rise in the crowd at airport with the ever-increasing demand of effortless journey the trials or full rollouts of biometric scanning systems are planned to be implemented by 77% of airports and 71% of airlines between 2018 and 2022.

Why and How it will work?

Despite the criticism on matters of the invasion of privacy, IATA have a vision to provide passengers with a seamless and efficient journey maintaining the security, security and privacy in conjunction, hence for this IATA encourages the collaboration between air transport stakeholders and airports to leverage this new technology through frameworks and standards. On-going with the vision airports are trying to substitute your each and every form of travel documents for your identification and authentication at all stages from entering airport to boarding the plane with “all biometric airport” system based on “privacy by design” principle facilitating the passengers with biometric self-service facilities which will verify your identity at every touch points including check in, bag drop, border clearance and boarding.

The foremost step of biometric authentication is the enrolment process. In this, at the first touch point, the biometric details of the passenger like iris, face, fingerprints or measure the unique facial landmarks (distance between the eyes or from forehead to chin) are collected by the SITA biometric system or even by taking a “selfie” on a dedicated mobile application (Ljubljana Airport in Slovenia tried biometric boarding in partnership with Amadeus in which Passengers were enrolled by taking a selfie on the Amadeus smartphone app) and cross-check that with the photo on your passport. This special and precise information is accumulated on a secure platform to match with your travel documents on the forthcoming touch points. Along with the identity evaluation the verification is performed via government agencies’ databases. This process generates a “single token” which will be used in the subsequent steps for your identification eliminating the need for redundant document checking (boarding pass, passport).

This streamlined process does not conclude with the security option, it offers further advantages like :

    • Providing real time visibility of the whereabouts of the passengers making it easier to locate the missing travellers, avoiding the departure delays.
    • The whole process can be expedited with the recognition of passengers with short connection time.
    • The data collected once can be further used for future travelling….. now, you can move quickly out of the boredom of getting verified every you put your step in the airport.
    • The anticipation of demand from the entry level helps in better management of passenger flow making a room for more travellers(which the airports usually defer to as action required is infrastructure expansion- no excuse now!), ultimately leading to the improvement in usage of space as well as capacity gains and not to forget the reduction in operational costs.
    • Diminishing the possibility of imposters travelling across borders using a false identity.
    • The reduction in queues at airport landslide areas will eventually diminish the potential terror threat.
    • And last but not least, the prominent factor is it saves your time, the whole screening process which too you around 25 minutes to complete will be finished in ten minutes……..a sigh of relief! So, it is a win-win for the airports, airlines as well as the passengers. But for this to be all bright and shiny it has a long way to go as the there are some issues which needs to be addressed like
    • The biometric details of the passenger should match with the previously stored data, hence the difficulty in achieving high level of accuracy no two face can have100% similarity. So, the data will be a close match not an exact match.
    • The system needs a way out from the two major errors o False Acceptance Rates which measures the number of cases when the system authorize an unauthorized person o False Rejection Rates which measures the number of cases when the system fails to recognize a traveller who was yet authorized to pass through the biometric self-service facility.
    • The time lapse in an attempt to compare the live biometrics with the database causes a great risk of error. Nevertheless, the biometric system at the airports has to overcome a lot of technical as well as invasion of privacy (the system cannot be forced) and the assessment of pros and cons of this technology needs to be considered. However, one thing is for sure that this system will revolutionize and change the face of the security at airports. Explore the new trends of travelling with Alexa Travel for USA to India flights.
