Automated Passport Control (APC) Kiosk Deployment List
Critical Data on Current Deployments by Airport

Check out Acuity’s “APC Kiosk Deployment List”. This list -- presented in spreadsheet format -- provides details for each known deployment including the number of kiosks, locations, installation date, vendors, costs, etc., as well as vendor market share information.

According to Acuity’s December 2017 count, there are 2283 operational APC kiosks located in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, the Middle East, the Carribean, and the Pacific with several hyndred targeted to go live in 2018. These included 57 airprots and 2 cruise port locations with a total of 71 instalations.

Acuity's APC count includes US Customs and Border Control Automated Passport Control (APC) Kiosk program, and Canada's Automated Border Control (ABC) and Primary Inspection Kiosk (PIK) programs.

APC Kiosks enable travelers to self-process immigration and biometric information prior to reaching passport control. This automation has decreased international arrival and pre-clearance border control wait times at airprots that have deployed them by by as much as 80%.

The number of border control kiosks increased more than 60% over last year with CAGR projected to exceed 20% for the next 3 years. The US and Canada dominate the market landscape with 60% and 35% of all border control kiosks deployed. Though only about 100 kiosks are deployed at ten locations across the Caribbean, Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East, Acuity expects the use of these highly efficient and cost-effective border control solutions to migrate broadly within existing regions while expanding regionally to include Asia, Latin America, and Africa over the next few years.
