Border controls may have been relaxed between Lithuania and the other
EU member states since it joined the EU in 2004, but robust identity
checks have recently been put in place that use the latest scanning
technology.

Lithuanian border guards will soon be able to access passport scanning technology that is being supplied by the UK company Rochford Thompson in a contract that is worth £1.8 million and is due to go live this year.

The installation will consist of 20 RTE6701 and 85 RTE8000 scanners, plus PCs, laser printers and networking provided by AIDETA.

Chris Scorey, managing director of Rochford Thompson said: “AIDETA is equipping the Lithuanian authorities with the latest ­generation of border security and this is a prestige business win for us.”
