  • Biometric tech does automatic immigration check on passengers entering the UK

    Iris recognition-based biometric technology has now been rolled out at Manchester Airport.

    The Iris Recognition Immigration System (Iris) will allow registered passengers to enter the UK without queuing to see an immigration officer at passport control.

  • Individuals signed up to the scheme will be able to walk up to an automated barrier, simply look into a camera and if the system recognises them enter the UK.
