FTI- TTP has been thoughtfully designed for the benefit of Indian citizens and OCI cardholders.This initiative will provide more facility for the Indian Nationals and OCI passengers coming from other countries. It is designed for faster, smoother and safer immigration clearance for international travellers. The program will run on e-gates or automated border gates which will minimise human intervention in the immigration clearance process. The programme will be implemented in two phases. In the first phase, Indian citizens and OCI cardholders will be covered and in the second phase, foreign travellers will be covered. The objective of this programme is to make international travel easy and secured by developing world-class immigration facilities through an accelerated immigration pathway for international travellers screened through automated gates (e-Gates).
