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:
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
V. ENTRY POINTS
The Border Management Section controls Somalia’s entrance points, including:
A: INTERNATIONAL AIRPORTS
B. LOCAL AIRPORT
D. BORDER POSTS
These entrance sites ensure proper immigration and customs processes, improving border security and efficiency.
