IOM, Canada Donate Document Fraud Detection Equipment to Ghana Immigration Service

IOM Ghana has donated document fraud detection equipment to the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) with funding provided by the Government of Canada. The equipment included passport reference manuals, compact magnifiers and document verification devices.

The 50 compact magnifiers will allow frontline GIS officers, in direct contact with travellers at entry/exit points to increase their document examination capacity on the ground while the document authentication and verification devices will ensure greater scrutiny in case of referrals for secondary level examination.

In addition, the donation included 45 copies of IOM’s Passport Examination Procedures Manual (PEPM) which is one of the world’s leading reference tools of its kind. It is designed for use by frontline immigration and border management officials and provides a standardized approach to the inspection and identification of fraudulent travel documents.

IOM Ghana Chief of Mission, Sylvia Lopez-Ekra said, “The project has made great strides with multi-country trainings on counter smuggling for land and maritime officials but also Training of Trainers (ToT) workshops successfully rolled out and duplicated in the three countries.”

She added, “This has created a sizable pool of trainers on counter-smuggling in Ghana. The new equipment will help these officers operationalise the training they have received and facilitate the detection of fraudulent travel documents at the borders”.
