Singapore Hotels Use Facial Recognition to Speed Up Check-In

29 November 2019

A new initiative, the E-Visitor Authentication (EVA) System is launched to enable faster verification of guests’ stay validity, which will facilitate a seamless check-in experience for guests. Participating hotels can use facial recognition technology to authenticate their guests’ identities, and the guest data will be sent to the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) to verify the validity of their stay. By eliminating the process of performing manual checks on travel documents, check-in time will be reduced by up to 70 percent.
