Zambia is getting ready to adapt its border control as a part of its program to target 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The deployment of electronic border management will address four of these goals in Zambia’s preparations to include migration and human mobility.
Already launched last year, the e-VISA is an additional part of the program, aimed at implementing procedures to protect vulnerable migrants.
The introduction of electronic border management offers increased flexibility and efficiency, while maintaining key border security, protecting both the traveller and the country’s borders.
The latest border management systems include integration and support for evolving technologies and an additional layer of security for the advance screening of passengers and flight crew, with entry and exit management procedures streamlined to enable enhanced coordination of resources for airlines, airports, customs and immigration.
