With the purpose of save time at immigration control, and avoid the long lines to which travelers are often exposed, Migration Colombia announced that reinforced its control at the country’s main airports with 30 new biomig machines.
20 of the new Bioming machines were installed at the El Dorado airport in Bogotá, 6 for the José María Córdova in Medellín, for the Ernesto Cortissoz in Barranquilla, 2 machines and another 2 for the Rafael Núñez in Cartagena.
“With these new Biomig we increased the number of existing machines by 71%going from 42, which we found when we came to the Government, to 72, which we achieved today in just 14 months,” he highlighted. Fernando García Manosalva, general director of Migration Colombia.
The main innovation of the new machines, unlike the current ones that work exclusively for Colombians or foreigners, is that they can be used interchangeably by national and foreign travelers.
Furthermore, the Director of Migration, also announced that it is planned to install two more Biomig corridors at the José María Córdova airport and two at the Rafael Núñez airport, for next December.
It should be noted that, with the growth of 20 Biomig in El Dorado, it has been possible for up to 57% of travelers leaving the country to use this innovative technology and improve service times.
And something very important to keep in mind, in the case of Bogotá, the official reported that the location of the Biomig corridors was also changed for the convenience of travelers. Before, they were located entering through the emigration zone, in the background, and now, entering through this same area, but towards the right side.
