The importance of performing travel document checks cannot be underestimated.
More and more countries are imposing ever-increasing heavy civil penalties on airlines transporting passengers with improper travel documents (such as those failing to comply with the requirements of countries of destination and/or transit), at a scope of thousands of dollars each. Furthermore, regulatory agencies are adopting stringent requirements relating to travel document checks in an effort to reduce the risk of hostile / terrorist elements penetrating the country, as well as to combat illegal immigration.
