About the scheme
It links carriers’ reservation and ticketing systems to the Ministry of Justice entry/departure management system, and passenger manifest information provided by these carriers are fed to the MOJ system.
i-PreChecking screens this information to sort out terrorists, blacklisted passengers or lost passport holders and relay results to carriers real-time whether passengers are OK or NOT OK to board their plane.
It, therefore, prevents potentially dangerous passengers from boarding planes from the very beginning.
How does it work?
|Carriers' request to check whether it's OK or NOT OK to issue boarding pass||Passengers' information is relayed to MOJ when he/she places reservations or is issued a boarding pass|
|MOJ’s reply to carriers||Passenger information feed is filtered through MOJ’s blacklisted passenger, VISA issuance, lost passport database and reply to carriers who is OK or NOT OK to board.|
|Carriers issue boarding pass||Carriers issue boarding pass to OK passengers.|
ow does it benefit us?
- It ensures Korea's national security and passengers' safety by blocking high risk passengers from boarding planes.
- It saves carriers' and passengers' cost by dramatically reducing the possibility of deportation cost of blacklisted passengers from arising.
- It allows speedier immigration clearance for low risk passengers.
