ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — New kiosks at  Orlando International Airport may help international travelers zip through customs at the touch of a screen.

The biometric kiosks will let international travelers speed up their arrival process by allowing them to complete customs declaration forms on touch-screens. The kiosks also record passports, fingerprints and facial images.

Orlando International Airport is the first U.S. airport to have the kiosks.

International travelers must come from a country where visas aren’t required to enter the United States and also must be approved by the Electronic System for Travel Authorization program.
