Airport self-service up and running
The 16 self-service kiosks in the arrivals section at the Grantley Adams International Airport are fully operational and can be used by locals.
Minister of Home Affairs Edmund Hinkson said the switch over from the tedious ED cards is an ongoing process. The 16 kiosks were purchased in 2016 and the pilot programme started last August.
There was a concern that not many Barbadians were using the available kiosks and still crowding the Immigration lines.
“As a Barbadian citizen, when I come into the airport, you don’t need to know what’s my address. The state has all of that information. Right now, as far as I am concerned, Barbadians can safely use these kiosks without having to fill out any ED forms. I am speaking from personal experience. (DB)
