Gabon Selects Gemalto for Visa Management System

Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, has been selected as end-to-end solution provider by Gabon’s Department of Homeland Security DGDI to supply and implement a fully integrated border and visa management system.

The new scheme will strengthen national security, improve operational efficiency and enhance the traveling experience for people entering and leaving the Central African state.

The visa management system simplifies and speeds the issuance of visas, e-Visas and resident’s permits. This suite of applications was used to create Gabon’s e-Visa portal service in July enabling visitors to use the Internet to apply for a visa to enter the country.

Once the Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) is delivered, the visa is issued at Libreville International Airport upon arrival.

The solution is built around the centralised, back-office Coesys Visa and Border Management System. This supports automation of queries to databases – such as Interpol’s that alert authorities to potential threats and risks. In addition, the Automated Border Control kiosks now offer travelers rapid, ‘self-service’ passport checks at the country’s main airport which handles around one million passengers annually.
