Through its Immigration and Border Management (IBM) programme, IOM supports Member States in improving the policy, legislation, operational systems, human resources and administrative and technical structures required to respond more effectively to diverse migration and border management challenges. Immigration and Border Management (IBM) activities are in line with IOM’s commitment to facilitate orderly, safe and regular migration and mobility.
IOM will provide technical support to enhance the Government of Sudan’s capacity to manage its borders in a way that is sensitive to the protection needs of migrants and delivers benefits for the country and for migrants. This assistance includes support for the development of legal and policy frameworks, the provision of technical assistance in the areas of curriculum development, document examination and interview skills, and the installation and use of border management information systems with the primary purpose of improving border management and ensuring the smooth and orderly processing of travelers.
During COVID-19, IOM supports health surveillance and screening at Points of Entry (PoEs) by providing equipment, infrastructure and facilities, establishing screening facilities, providing supplies, and training PoE staff on social distancing surveillance and case definition/referral protocols.
