The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has chosen dasGate’s identity verification and access management platform to offer more convenient and secure border management in Kasumbalesa (located between the Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia).
This platform allows travelers to cross the DRC-Zambia border faster and more securely; in less than 1 second, only their face and a Biometric QR are received on their cell phone.
The challenge: Improving security and access experience for entry-border travel
Conventional access control systems, such as tickets, documents, and visas, have associated drawbacks that impact the comfort and security of travelers and the entire control process.
We are used to these realities, but that can be changed and improved. Passenger boarding can be digitized to become a more efficient, convenient, and sustainable process.
For this reason, Kasumbalesa sees an opportunity to improve the management of its borders and to continue advancing in the digital transformation of its facilities, betting on the comfort and security provided by dasGate’s platform.
Solution: dasGate's access management and identity verification platform
dasGate has developed a vdi and biometric access platform that improves the control and security of cross-border travel and migration challenges.
The project involves placing dasGate’s facial recognition terminals at the Kasumbalesa border checkpoint, located between the DRC and Zambia. This milestone is part of a larger project funded by the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) to increase cross-border trade.
Those who want to cross the border must register on the dasGate platform and will receive a patented (irreversible) biometric QR that is secure and private. In this way, they will be able to make cross-border trips most conveniently and securely without compromising any traveler data. In addition, this biometric QR code includes contextual data to pinpoint the exact border crossing point and the date to cross the border.
Thanks to dasGate and IOM, the BCP Kasumbalesa project is improving the lives of Zambians.
Result: Increased security and convenience for border and traveler management.
With dasGate’s platform, any passenger who has purchased a ticket and pre-registered with their facial biometrics can access their boarding area in less than a second and only with a QR and by presenting their face. Biometric check-in is effortless.
Thanks to the trust placed in dasGate, Kasumbalesa succeeds:
