On 20 July, ICMPD in partnership with the Public Security Directorate and the Kingdom of the Netherlands, organised a “Lessons Learned Conference of the Document Security Project in Jordan” in Amman. The conference aimed to highlight the main achievements and success of this pilot project, in addition to presenting lessons learned and good practices in the field of document security.
Objective: To support Jordanian Border Management Agencies in strengthening capacities and fostering information exchange in document security and utilization of advanced standards by national experts
- To strengthen capacity in detecting fraudulent use of travel and identity documents;
- To advance capacity in the development of training programmes and curricula on document security basic and intermediate level;
- To enhance cooperation and exchange of information on detected forged and falsified documents, genuine travel documents, as well as methods of forgeries.
These objectives will be pursued through three separate yet mutually reinforcing components, namely:

Equipment – Enhancing Jordanian border management agencies infrastructure capabilities in detecting forged travel documents through the provision of document detection equipment. This Component focuses on the purchase, installation and training on usage of the document detection equipment through the establishment of a document laboratory, including the respective training on its effective use.
Information Exchange – Creating effective and efficient information exchange mechanism at the national and international level. This component focuses on enhancing effective cooperation and information exchange between the agencies involved in tackling irregular migration.
