The Department of Home Affairs together with SA immigration will be implementing their new Biometric System which will apply to all passengers who will be embarking from Cape Town Terminal.
The Biometric System will be rolled out at the Cape Town terminal as part of this new pilot project. The Biometric data capturing process, which is integral to the success of the project refers to the capturing of anatomical or physiological data by which a person can be uniquely identified - in this case your fingerprint data will be captured at the port when you begin the embarkation process.
Please be aware that the embarkation process will be delayed due to this new system and we thank you for your patience in advance.
Please note you are still required to bring with you your valid passport, all necessary documentation and cruise tickets for embarkation.
We look forward to welcoming you on board .
