Border Management

Border Control

Within Somalia’s Immigration and Citizenship Agency, the Border Management Department is a key part of keeping the country’s borders safe and running smoothly. Its function is to enforce and make sure that border control policies and procedures are followed. The main goal is to keep Somalia’s borders safe and allow legal activities to happen across them, such as:-

I. BORDER PASS

Residents living on the border obtain border passes from the Border Management Section. These passes enable them to engage in routine cross-border activities in accordance with bilateral or regional agreements between Somalia and its bordering countries. As a result of this fast process, people can move around easily while border security is kept.

II. CHILD ENTRY AND EXIT

To ensure the protection of children from transnational criminal activities, particularly child trafficking, the Border Management Section has implemented precise directives for those below the age of sixteen (16) who intend to enter or depart from Somalia. The guidelines include:

  • Accompanied Travel: Children must travel with a parent or someone permitted by a court order.
  • Proof of permission: When the kid travels unattended, one of the parents or guardians must provide permission proof that has been allowed by the competent authorities.
  • It is the duty of the transportation company to make sure that the child gets where they need to go if they are in charge of the kid.

III. THE ENTRY AND EXIT OF A DECEASED PERSON

To enter or depart with a dead person, an accompanying person must provide a death certificate to the immigration officer. Border immigration agents might check deceased individuals to confirm compliance.

IV. REQUIREMENTS FOR FOREIGNERS ENTERING SOMALIA
