Due to the COVID-19 situation and travel restrictions around the world, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and APSCA decided to postpone the 6th Border Management and Identity Conference (BMIC) in Bangkok, Thailand to 7th – 9th December 2022.
In the lead up to the 6th BMIC, IOM and APSCA are organizing a series of webinars to bring together key stakeholder from Government and private sector to pave the foundation of the discussions to be held during the in–person conference at the end of this year.
>> The second webinar of the Road to BMIC Webinar Series will be held via Zoom on Thursday, 17th March 2022 at 13:00 – 14:30 (GMT+7 Bangkok time.)
>> The theme of the webinar is "Managing Health and Vaccine Certificates at the Border: New Frauds to Deal with?”
The webinar aims to enhance participants' understanding how health documentations are now part of travel documents, and how to best respond to frauds associated with them including fraudulent identity, forgery, and alteration.
Experts from the governments and international organizations will share their knowledge and experiences in the areas of identity verification and identification, as well as discussions on how to verify low/no security features-based certificates issued by other countries, and how the use of mobile technology can minimize the risks and support controls and verifications of health and vaccine certificates.
IOM and APSCA are inviting national government authorities and international agencies involved in Immigration, Border Control, Customs, e-Passports, Health Certificate, as well as companies providing related solutions to attend the webinar.
