Amit Shah launches special programme to fast-track immigration services


PTI, Jun 22, 2024, 6:35 PM IST

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday launched a special programme under which the immigration process for pre-verified Indian nationals and Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) cardholders will be fast-tracked.

The Fast Track Immigration-Trusted Traveller Programme (FTI-TTP) is a “visionary initiative” of the government, thoughtfully designed for Indian nationals and OCI cardholders, Shah said.

The FTI-TTP is similar to the Global Entry Program offered by the United States that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travellers upon arrival at select US airports, officials said.

The programme will be phased in, starting with Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kochi, and Ahmedabad airports, ultimately reaching 21 major Indian airports. The e-gates will facilitate swift, seamless passage, significantly reducing airport congestion and enhancing travel convenience for all participants.
