2003 to 2007, the National AFIS constructed using PAPILLON’s AFIS technologies got 11 fixed stations for fingerprint enrollment and instant ID checks installed for the needs of the Albanian Police.
All major entry points to the country – international airport, harbors and border check-points – have all the opportunities to conduct express ID checks against the central AFIS database installed in Tirana, the capital of the Republic. Remote stations are connected with the AFIS system via dedicated DSL channels of MOPO Network. One session of express ID check against the entire AFIS database (about 500 thousand tenprints) takes less than 1 minute.
In 2016, supplied anew were 23 stations of PAPILLON MDS 45 to conduct fingerprinting and instant identity verification.
