  14. 14. NEW VISA POLICY•••Hitherto the new visa policy, fraudsters took advantage of the leakages in theprocessing of visas and thus created unnecessary bottlenecks for the processof issuance of visa at the points of entry and some measures were undertaken.FEC approved the new visa policy to serve as a veritable tool for achieving theTransformation Agenda of Mr. President and the vision 20:2020.Theobjective was to quicken economic development by encouraging FDI, jobcreation and boost tourism.In line with the policy, notable Business men (frequent travellers) and topmanagement staff of Multinational organizations are being issued entry visasat points of entry.Similarly citizens of countries with which Nigeria has visa agreements arebeing issued entry visa at points of entry.?MINISTRY OF INTERIOR 7
  15. 15. e-PASSPORT INTERVENTION?????In consideration of the suffering more especially of Nigerians in the Diaspora aswell as to secure the passport from fraudsters the ministry and NigeriaImmigration service introduced the e-passport. The e-passport is inconformity with international best practices.It has placed the country on a higher rating and ensured the integrity of theNigerian passports.Nigerian passports can now be issued within three days, after all the on-lineprocessing.In 2012 the NIS sent officers to 444 countries for the e-passportintervention.The e- passport project has a mobile component which enhances thecapacity to reach out to Nigerians in the Diaspora.MINISTRY OF INTERIOR 8
  16. 16. ??A recent monitoring and evaluation of the e-passport intervention schemeshowed that Nigerians in the Diaspora applauded Government for theinitiative.This is evidence of the current Government citizens diplomacy as this hasgiven Nigerians in the Diaspora a sense identity and pride.AUTHENTICATION OF TRAVEL DOCUMENTS???Also, the Nigeria Passports over the years have been abused by unscrupulouspersons in the production of fake passports to unsuspecting Nigerians, theMinistry installed electronic Machine Readable Travel Documents (MRTD) inall our international AirportsThe International Civil Aviation organisation Public Key Directory (ICAO-PKD)Global Platform is currently installing electronic Machine Readable TravelDocuments (MRTD) in all our international Airports.This is to provide the authentication of Nigerian e-passports and otherelectronic Machine Readable Travel Documents (MRTD) of other countries.MINISTRY OF INTERIOR 9
  17. 17. ???The Country has porous borders of about 1497 illegal routes used by illegalaliens and thus create unabated influx of illegal aliens into the country.In order to effectively secure the nation’s vast and porous borders, the Ministryis currently working on the deployment of modern technology. Thus an MOUhas been entered into with a Chinese Company: China Machinery EngineeringCorporation for the acquisition of ICT equipment to effectively manage bordersecurity.The 10 Finger Print Bio-metric Policy is to ascertain the identity of eachpassport holder and reduce abuse of compromising the Automated FingerPrint Identification System which at the moment captures only four fingersprints.BORDER MANAGEMENT10 FINGER PRINT BIO-METRIC POLICY10

  19. 19. AUTOMATIC FIRE ALERT SYSTEM??Real estate developers and private individual house owners do not takeognissanceof fire prevention hence incessant fire incidents. The Ministry inrecognition of the lapses in building plans entered into a PPP arrangement.FFS has, in partnership with a private organisation under the PPParrangement, designed and launched an Automatic Fire Alert system whichactivates as soon as fire smoke is detected.UPGRADING OF PUBLIC KEY INFRASTRUCTURE (PKI) ATFOUR (4) INTERNATIONAL AIRPORTS:?The four International Airports (MMIA Lagos, NAIA Abuja, MAKIA Kano andPort-Harcourt) have been provided with Automated ImmigrationPassenger Clearance System to authenticate signature on passport whichhelps in reducing the tendency for migrants getting involved in terrorism.12

The purpose of the code is to prescribe theminimal standard necessary for the establishment of a reasonable level ofreduction in fire outbreaks thereby ensuring the safety of live andproperties from fire hazards.Jail breaks and attacks on prisons have become a hydra headed monster to thesecurity of the prisons. The Ministry in solving the problem signed an MOUwith a Nigerian based Chinese Company, uawei Technologies Company (Nig)Ltd, to collaborate and implement an e-prison programme in Nigeria. Thisinitiative is to boost prison surveillance and security through PrisonsInformation Management System. The proposed project is undergoing the dueprocess of implementation.lle-PRISONNATIONAL FIRE SAFETY CODE13
