The federal police, who randomly check the electronic reports on entry at the airports, cannot check the correctness of the data. “The federal police have no access to the electronic entry data of the travelers,” said a spokeswoman for the agency the news magazine. Instead, the officers could only check by comparison with the passport whether first and last name and date of birth were entered correctly.
