DHS Estimates Biometric Air Exit Program Would Cost $3 Billion Over 10 Years :: Defense Daily

The cost of implementing a biometric exit program at the nation’s airports would cost more than $3 billion over 10 years, officials from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) told a House panel yesterday.

Those estimates are about three times the expected costs a DHS official provided Congress in 2010 based on the results of pilot projects that explored options for collecting fingerprint data from foreign nationals departing the United States through airports (Defense Daily, March 26, 2010).
