Document Issuing Solution & Border Management Systems, ID Cards, Travel Documents & Visa
In 2018, the authorities of Mozambique awarded a concession with a contract period of eight years on the basis of a public-private partnership (PPP)model to Mühlbauer. The project’s scope was it to deliver, distribute, install and ramp-up a state-of-the-art system for the issuance of multiple types of identification documents for citizens and visitors. The project also included a border crossing solution and training of staff. It was to be delivered within a period of just six months after the contract signature. The management systems were distributed nationwide to 12 provinces and 177 districts, to all 13 airports, to 31 land, river and sea borders and to 45 embassies and consulates worldwide. The system can be fully operated online and offline (depending on network availability) and has the highest IT security standards regarding data security, data transfer and data loss.
The system consists of four independently operable data bases for four independent authorities (citizen data, foreigner data, travel documents and border management) which are all interlinked and interoperable for national security and information purposes. On a nationwide basis, the government issues biometric national identification cards and electronic travel documents, as well as biometric emergency travel documents for all citizens of Mozambique. In embassies and consulates, the issuance of travel documents, identification cards and emergency documents for nationals of Mozambique is supported as well. For visitors, biometric visa documents can be issued at all airports and border posts, as well as in consulates and embassies. Furthermore, resident alien cards and biometric emergency travel documents for foreigners as well as United Nation travel documents are produced.
