IOM has partnered with South Sudan Directorate of Nationality, Passports and Immigration (DNPI) to conducted a workshop for law enforcement and civilian agencies to improve security at the Juba International Airport, the company said.
The training aimed to promote interagency cooperation as a means to enhancing safety, facilitating the transport of persons and goods and enforcing border controls.
IOM and DNPI brought together staff involved throughout the entire airport operation to improve standard operating procedures and define roles and responsibilities as guided by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
IOM works to ensure humane and orderly migration while facilitating the movement of goods and securing the territorial integrity of South Sudan. With support from the Government of Japan, IOM has implemented immigration and border management projects, focusing on enhancing capacities of the Government of the Republic of South Sudan, since 2010.
