Portuguese app allows to inspect the entrances and exits of the country without having to resort to physical contact

In Portugal, border control started on March 16 with the entry into force of the State of Emergency will remain at least until June 15. Within a month, SEF Mobile, an application developed by the Portuguese company Present Technologies, allowed the Foreigners and Borders Service to carry out more than 75,000 border controls without resorting to physical contact.

The application was developed to respond to the new European legislation on border controls. Although initially conceived with the control of air and sea areas in mind, the COVID-19 pandemic ended up creating challenges in the verification of land borders.

When it became known that land borders were going to be controlled due to the State of Emergency, SEF Mobile had to be quickly adapted to respond to the new reality.
