About the course

2-hour e-learning course

IATA Travel Document and Entry Requirement Checks aviation training course

Passenger and travel document check assessment skills are essential for Passenger Agents, as all passengers must carry and present the documents prescribed by the countries of transit and destination. Abuse of Entry Regulations and Identity are linked to illegal immigration and other crime, including terrorism therefore, Governments require these controls to monitor entry into their jurisdiction and consequently, introduce penalties on airlines carrying inadequately documented passengers.

Airlines and ground handlers can be saved from costly delays and penalties by ensuring that their employees are adequately trained to recognize impersonation or counterfeit or forged travel documents. Based on the latest trends and industry best practices, this course provides tools to identify forged documents and potentially disruptive passengers.
