In a significant move to ease passenger congestion and reduce waiting times, Union Home Minister Amit Shah inaugurated the ‘Fast Track Immigration-Trusted Traveler Program (FTI-TTP)’ at Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport’s Terminal 3 on Saturday.


This new initiative promises a seamless and quick immigration process for Indian citizens and Overseas Citizens of India (OCI) cardholders.

The FTI-TTP aims to provide a faster, easier, and more secure travel experience. Special e-gates have been installed at the airport to facilitate this process. Indian passport holders and OCI cardholders can use these e-gates to bypass long immigration queues.


Key Benefits:

  • Quick and Efficient: Bypass long queues.
  • Secure: Enhanced security through biometric verification.
  • Convenient: Available for both Indian citizens and OCI cardholders.
