The passport scanner system is actually pretty cool, so that will be even better.

Had a chance to test it over the Christmas holidays and that is much more effective than OR Tambo's immigration desks that are permanently understaffed, no matter how many people complain online, and daily chaos that ensue.

Goodbye ..........

So it starts
You are now GIVING away a UNIQUE part of yourself over which YOU will have NO further control and that CANNOT ever be recovered / deleted / rescinded

Good luck
IF
You think that this is ONLY about -- "passport-control"

HOW do you think you will you ever stop any OTHER "government" department from making use of all YOUR UNIQUE and unalterable BIO -METRIC data ?
Now that you have -- VOLUNTARILY GIVEN UP YOUR RIGHT TO IT ???????

Stupid stupid sheeple

Title is misleading, as Australians will still need passports to visit other countries

You mean like fingerprints?
YES

Bill of Rights Handbook ( Juta )

The Constitution informs every aspect of our legal system and every instance of interpretation and application of that system. The Bill of Rights Handbook’s detailed coverage of all aspects of Bill of Rights jurisprudence and practice has made it the standard reference work for this important area of law, and it has been extensively relied upon and quoted by the judiciary.

The sixth edition of the Handbook is a comprehensive account of over two decades of jurisprudence interpreting and applying the Bill of Rights. The work has been thoroughly revised, in particular to cover developments in the areas of constitutional jurisdiction, remedies and socio-economic rights.

Please note -- The Constitution is NOT going to help you

Now lets get on to SAPS and their access to the Home Affairs fingerprint database ( HANIS / AFIS )

The Criminal Law (Forensic Procedures) Amendment Act 6 of 2010 has come into effect.

In a notice published in the Government Gazette, president Zuma proclaimed 18 January 2013 as the date on which the act came into force.

The act was assented to in October 2010.
The act amends Criminal Procedure Act 51 of 1977, South African Police Service Act 68 of 1995, Firearms Control Act 60 of 2000, and Explosives Act 15 of 2003.
The principal aim of the Act is to strengthen the forensic investigative powers and capacity of the South African Police Service (SAPS).
The act was drawn up in response to constraints and gaps identified in existing legislation during a review conducted by the Office for Criminal Justice System Reform. These constraints and gaps affected two pivotal aspects of South Africa’s forensic crime fighting capacity:

• the collection, storage and use of fingerprinting; and
• DNA evidence.

For criminal investigation purposes, the act provides the SAPS with access to fingerprint databases maintained by the department of home affairs, the department of transport, “or any department of state in the national sphere of government”. This is irrespective of whether the photographic images or prints concerned were collected prior to its coming into effect.
Further, the act extends the powers of the SAPS to take and retain fingerprints and other biometric materials for criminal investigation purposes. Biometric materials include bodily substances taken for the purposes of DNA analysis.

Then

The SA DNA database

South Africa's DNA database was introduced in 1997. New legislation to expand it was passed by the National Assembly in September 2013, received Presidential assent in January 2014 and came into force on 1st January 2015.
