Passport Control, Barajas Airport


I remind you that in order to use this automatic service it is necessary to be citizen of the European Union, Iceland, Norway or Switzerland, in addition to having electronic passport or DNI-E And be older than 18 years-old. With my passport in hand, I approached the row of bright little machines and a police officer guided me through the process. Document face down inserted in the corresponding slot, put your feet at the point marked on the ground, stare at the camera, put the index finger of the right hand on the fingerprint reader ... and voila. This time there were no red lights or error messages so, with the approval of the agent, I continued forward.

The funny thing is that, after the test, you are headed to ... a cabin where another police officer rechecks the documentation that you present, gives you the approval and you can go to collect your luggage. That is, as the procedure is now implanted itself you don't earn anything with using the automatic system except, as happened to me in Stansted, the option without machine Be a kilometer tail.
