The new scheme will strengthen national security, improve operational efficiency and enhance the travelling experience.
“Gemalto’s solution puts us in control of a secure and adaptable integrated border management system that is field-proven. It also helps expedite the border clearance process, cutting wait times and improving the customs experience for travellers,” said General Celestin Embinga, general manager of DGDI, Gabon’s Department of Homeland Security.
The system has created Gabon’s e-visa portal service that allows visitors to apply online for their visas. The visa is issued at Libreville International Airport upon arrival after the Electronic Travel Authorisation is delivered. (africanaerospace, photo: ia)
