Denmark supports Ghana's fight against irregular migration

06.09.2019  15:02

On Wednesday 4 September Ghana Immigration Services marked 50 employees’ successful completion of basic training in the detection of forged and falsified travel documents. The training was implemented with the support of the Dutch Immigration Service  under the ‘Strengthening Border and Migration Management’ (SMMIG) project, which is financed by Denmark and implemented by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD).

Through the SMMIG project Denmark seeks to support the Government of Ghana in strengthening its institutional and operational capacities to manage irregular migration flows. An essential part of this is to increase front line immigration officers’ ability to detect forged and falsified travel documents. 

The top ten graduates from the basic course will move on and receive intermediate level training in the Netherlands later this year.
