Albania and the U.S sign agreement for a common passenger control system

Albania and the United States will have a common system to control passengers.

The memorandum of cooperation has been approved by the parliamentary committees and is expected to be voted soon in the plenary session.

But what does the document signed by Ambassador Yuri Kim and the Minister of Internal Affairs, Sander Lleshaj contain?

The focus is on minimizing risks associated to criminal and terrorist international travels, as well as other threats in the field of border security, through the analysis and evaluation of passenger information.

An electronic system will be set up with the help of US security and customs authorities to identify people who pose a threat to America’s security and vice versa.

In addition to passenger information, the agreement provides for the exchange of information on crews, the identification of criminal networks or risks to previously unknown security threats.
