To help ease long lines for international travelers, Miami International Airport has installed 36 new self-service passport control kiosks in the North Terminal.
The automated technology will process passports for citizens of the United States and Canada, which should free up U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers to help non-citizens.
Soft launch testing of the Passport Express system finished last week; all eligible travelers were able to start using the kiosks last Thursday.
Another 12 kiosks will be installed in the South Terminal next year.
MIA said it is one of three airports in the United States using the technology.
