Sub-Group on Immigration
The Sub-Group on Immigration considers the facilitation aspects of immigration issues with the aim of sharing experience and developing best practice on border control procedures and implementation matters (e.g. inadmissible passengers and deportees, automated border control (ABC) systems, biometrics collection, Advance Passenger Information (API) and Passenger Name Records (PNR).
The sub-group focuses on the application of new technologies and the harmonisation of good practices and maintains several surveys in order to monitor initiatives in ECAC Member States (e.g. biometrics, air carrier liability, API and PNR).
