Seattle - Does Customs and Border Protection use Facial Recognition


Recommended Posts

I disembarked NCL Bliss last Saturday at Pier 66. One moment in front of a facial recognition scanner and that was it - no keycard swipe for checking out of the ship, no passport check for exiting the terminal.


For check-in, yes, there was a physical passport check.

I departed at a Pier 91 on May 10 and they were basically waving everyone through as long as you held up your passport. I never stopped walking once in line all the way through the checkpoint. There is no way they were even looking at the name or photo.
