Mauritius to beef up Border Control management

Published

on

The Immigration (Advance Passenger Information and Passenger Name Record Data) Regulations 2021 and the Civil Aviation (Collection of Data from Operators of Private Flights Landing in, or Departing from, Mauritius) Regulations 2021 will be promulgated to facilitate the introduction of a Passenger Information System for the enhancement of Border Control Management in Mauritius.

According to latest Cabinet papers, the Immigration (Advance Passenger Information and Passenger Name Record Data) Regulations 2021 will “provide the regulatory framework for carriers serving Mauritius to send booking and check-in data in a timely manner to the Passport and Immigration Office (PIO). It would allow Border Control Agencies to carry out profiling of passengers in advance and to respond appropriately.”

The Immigration (Advance Passenger Information and Passenger Name Record Data) Regulations 2021 will require commercial air transport operators to submit passenger data to the PIO within a specified time, Cabinet papers said.

As regards operators of private flights, once the Civil Aviation (Collection of Data from Operators of Private Flights Landing in, or Departing from, Mauritius) Regulations 2021 will be promulgated, they will have to submit the required data on passengers and crew to the Director of Civil Aviation.
