Travizory signed a 10-year contract with the government of Seychelles

Travizory have announced that they have signed a 10-year contract with the government of Seychelles to implement our next-generation border management solution.

This new move makes Seychelles the FIRST African country to introduce facial biometrics capability at its borders.

Sherin Francis, CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board said:
“This is exactly what we need to keep the Seychelles COVID-safe for everyone while boosting our economy as we welcome visitors all over the world. It is simple to use, for our passengers and authorities, and keeps border queues to a minimum. We’re proud to be one of only a handful of nations to deploy these capabilities, in keeping with our image of being a leading travel destination.” Travizory, a Swiss-based border technology company, is delivering to Seychelles a next generation facial Travel Authorization (fTA™) system that allows travelers to complete advance entry formalities for health, immigration and customs before they travel, from the comfort of their own home, using either mobile apps or the website. The platform combines the traveler’s data with information supplied by the airlines to Travizory’s Advance Passenger Information (API) and Passenger Name Record (PNR) system
