Uluçay examines new optical readers at the checkpoints

Optic readers to be used for crossings at check points have been established as of today. Interior Minister Teberrüken Uluçay who went to the Metehan crossing point today examined the optic readers and said they were being implemented at all crossing points from Ercan airport to the ports and borders. Uluçay said that the work related to bring the immigration staff cabins closer to the pavements would be completed next week as well. At a meeting at the Metehan crossing point with the UN it was discussed that the number of immigration officers in the south be increased to two as the queue of cars crossing into the south was more. The minister responding to questions said that citizens were not obliged to get the e-ID cards and they could still use their present IDs when crossing.
