Traveling internationally through Chicago's Midway Airport is about to get a little easier.

The airport is launching an automated passport control program, which is designed to move travelers more quickly through the U.S. border by entering their info at self-service kiosks.

The kiosks are expected to be installed early next year.

O'Hare Airport already uses the same technology, which contributed to a drop in wait times.

Chicago is the first city in the country to use the self-service passport kiosks technology.
