This week saw the introduction of tighter security measures in Fiji as the Immigration Department implemented the new Integrated Border Management System (IBMS) at Nadi International Airport and every other entry point countrywide.
The Fijian Government awarded the contract for installation to Public Sector Solution of Informatics International Limit, a Sri Lankan company who implemented the IBMS, state-of-the-art technology with features designed to enhance passenger profiling and visual verifications that can assist in the identification of high-risk passengers.
IBMS will change the face of security and enhance border management system control, maximising efficiency and productivity with features including access to data, passport and citizenship information, visa and permit modules.
“It will allow for a quick flow of all of our immigration processes and ensure there is quick turnaround time for each passenger that enter or leave our country,” said Major Nemani Vuniwaqa, Director of Immigration for Fiji. “It strengthens our security system at all of our borders and ensures that we find people that may, in the past, slipped through.”
