Peru to screen passengers to identify aviation threats

Published on : Thursday, June 9, 2016

Peru to screen passengersPeru will identify aviation threats posed by arriving passengers, thereby ensuring security and internal order in Peru. To this end, the country’s National Superintendence of Migrations will soon implement the Center for Immigration Alerts, equipped with two modern systems.

 
According to the center’s head Boris Potozen, the implementation of Advance Passenger Information System (APIS) and Automated Targeting System – Global (ATS-G) will be cost-free, as they will be provided and financed by the United States for five years.

 
“The two systems are most likely to be set up by July 28; their cost-free installation and operation will enable Peru to save a lot of money,” he told the Congress.

 
“API’s implementation will give Peru the possibility to get advance information about passengers coming to our country, and detect risky or dangerous elements,” he pointed out.

 
For instance, if there is an arrest warrant out for a passenger coming from Madrid, the police shall meet the person at the arrival gate to arrest him.

 
The first mission of CBP – agency in charge of the systems implementation process – arrived in Lima last week.
