ORLANDO (CBSMimai/AP) — Orlando International Airport has gone high tech to help their international visitors zip through the customs process.

Biometric kiosks allow 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.
