According to the explanations about the new system, if the traveler has any inconvenience due to being on the black list of impediment to entry into the country, the ticket will be printed with an X, indicating that the passenger must pass an rigorous inspection by a migration inspector.

Fortunately, nothing is said about extensive inspection with plastic gloves
