Step right up for passport screening, face-first, at Miami International Airport. The airport’s Concourse E just debuted facial recognition technology, NBC Miami reports.

The idea is that this will match a face to a passport, shortening customs lines and making international flights easier to board. Miami International Airport says its facility “is the first in the country completely dedicated” to using this advancement in passport screening, according to the Miami Herald.
