SmartGate Expansion

The Australian Government recently launched a trial to extend SmartGate to Singapore nationals with electronic passports.

SmartGate is also available to Australian, New Zealand and UK citizens, and to US and Swiss electronic passport holders under trial arrangements.

SmartGate is a self-service processing option for eligible travellers entering Australia which makes it easier and faster to go through passport control.

Sydney Airport has increased automated passenger processing capacity by 45% and operates more than double the number of SmartGates than the next largest international airport.

The airport will continue to work with Customs to improve passenger facilitation.
