ISLAMABAD: The National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) has installed the Integrated Border Management System (IBMS) on the train route between Pakistan and India at the Khokhrapar border.

“IBMS is now operational at Khokhrapar for the management of passengers of all entries and exists through the station and till date around 800 passengers have been processed through the system,” the spokesperson said.

She said Nadra was the partner for implementation of IBMS for FIA to replace the existing Personal Identification Secure Comparison and Evaluation System at all the entry and exist points in Pakistan, including airports, railway stations and land routes.

The IBMS is already working at all major international airports, including Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar and Quetta and at Torkham, a land route to Afghanistan.

Highlighting the IBMS features, she said, it had been designed to document and store the entire process starting from visa issuance till departure from and arrival in the country thus preventing human trafficking as well as illegal immigrants to flee from the country.
