Yes, just they are on the left hand side of the arrival area where you would usually line up to have passport stamped.

Yes there are machines as you go upstairs for departure which scan your boarding pass, but the machines mentioned in this article are in the arrival area to scan your passport.

That is incorrect. Those newest machines mentioned in the article are in departure area (on the second floor as shown in the photos). Been there, done that.

Did you actually use the machines in the arrival area? They were not in use the end of December, just sitting over to the left unconnected.

We saw new machines as we arrived last week, but still had plastic covers. We are at the airport now and the boarding pass scanners are indeed at the bottom of the stairs.

I just came in Tuesday and it was still the old process. No machines in use yet.

Yup...still sitting there. Only change was no arrival forms anymore. Just passport, flight number and where you are staying (verbal)

best arrival in quite some time...minimal issues at immigration. Bags already on the belt and just walked out..maybe 10 minutes. TripleA was there and off we went.

Nice....
