Guyana prepares for Electronic Visa (E-Visa) and Work Visa System (08-03-2017)

Guyana prepares for Electronic Visa (E-Visa) and Work Visa System
Guyana, concerned about bogus immigration stamps in foreigners’ passports and human trafficking, is moving to introduce an Electronic Visa (E-Visa) and Work Visa System as part of the implementation and development of a modern visa issuance policy and system.

The Ministry of the Presidency’s Department of Citizenship and Immigration says Guyana has received assistance from the European Union (EU) and the United Nations’ International Organisation for Migration (IOM) to set up an Electronic Visa (E-Visa) and Work Visa System.

Minister of Citizenship, Mr. Winston Felix on Wednesday received the Policy Recommendations and Guidelines for the Setup of an Electronic Visa (E-Visa) and Work Visa System, which will aid in the implementation and development of a modern visa issuance policy and system in Guyana.

Work to compile the report, which was conducted by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), came about following a request made by the Department of Citizenship to the African, Caribbean-European Union (ACP-EU) Migration Action Programme in June 2015 for technical assistance on how to improve the country’s visa processing and issuance system and immigration services.

Ambassador to the European Union (EU) in Guyana, Mr. Jernej Videtic, handed over the report to the Minister, who during brief remarks at the handing over ceremony, said that he was happy to receive the report, as it will serve as a source for correcting the many issues associated with the country’s current visa system.

”The world is changing, but the migration policy in Guyana has not changed. We have had our immigration laws and visa facilities available since we became Independent with very little changes to it. But in this changing world, which is seeing human trafficking, transnational crime and irregular migration patterns, we in Guyana are now seeking to harden the soft parts of our immigration system,” the Minister was quoted as saying in a Ministry of the Presidency statement.
