The BioScreen system has been progressively implemented at all checkpoints to capture the thumbprints of all arriving and departing travelers. ICA reminded the public that with security checks, traffic build-up in inevitable when a large number of travelers use the checkpoints at the same time.

Travelers should expect a longer than usual waiting time at the checkpoints, and are advised to adjust their travel plans accordingly.
