Integrated Border Management System (IBMS)

The menace of illegal travel documents, human smuggling and entry/exit of undesirable elements has created a major imbalance in our internal and external societal dynamics and tarnished Pakistan’s image globally. Crime feeds upon the inability of states to ensure reliable identity/credible travel documents for its citizens and visas for foreigners entering its borders; and is compounded by the absence of systems enabled to detect fraudulent movement at immigration points. The problem is especially pronounced in Pakistan, bringing into question the nation’s credibility in the community of nations.

History of PISCES

In order to computerize the Arrival / Departure record of International Travelers, “Personal Identification Secure Comparison & Evaluation System”, (PISCES), was established in 2002 under the umbrella of Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) with partial assistance of the US Government. PISCES was appreciated internationally and considered a vital tool in the fight against terrorism; combating human trafficking, minimizing human smuggling and discouraging the designs of all who want to deceive the Immigration System of Pakistan. PISCES provided a mutually agreed platform for relevant stakeholders to implement the standardized Exit Control List (ECL) System. This Project was completed in June 2010.


Who We Are

IBMS is a national level system of critical nature and being vital component to support FIA immigration to keep an eye on all incoming and outgoing international travelers on the basis of FIA Act 1974 and Foreigners Registration Act 1964. Also part of National Action Plan to support Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) & Intelligence Agencies (IAs) in fight against terrorism, illegal trafficking and over stay of foreign nationals in Pakistan. IBMS has taken-up responsibility of maintaining and updating the database prepared by PISCES from 2003 to 2010, and to keep it updated as per current and future needs of the Immigration system of Pakistan.
