MasterCard has reportedly teamed up with DATEL and Mashreqbank to launch a combined prepay card and immigration identification device in the United Arab Emirates.
The unique two-in-one card is aimed at travelers looking to pass speedily through UAE airports, local news provider AME Info reports. Users would be able to pass through an electronic immigration desk, or eGate, to avoid time-consuming queues at passport control. The electronic system would automatically verify the user’s ID details, stored on the card.
MasterCard is a critical link for businesses and cardholders worldwide and this collaboration with Mashreqbank and DATEL is an example of how MasterCard works with businesses to develop secure, convenient and rewarding payment solutions that add real value for cardholders, AME Info quoted Eyad Al-Kourdi, country manager for the UAE and Qatar at MasterCard, as saying.
