IOM organises study tour on civil registry, identity management


March 21, 2021 (JUBA/KHARTOUM) - A delegation from South Sudan’s Civil Registry Directorate in the Ministry of Interior are on a five-day study visit to Sudan’s capital, Khartoum to learn about Civil Registry and Identity Management from their counterparts.

The visit, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) said, is intended to provide an opportunity for members of the Civil Registry’s Technical Working Group to enhance their knowledge on the operational aspect of Civil Registration including Identity Management to contribute towards the establishment of guidelines on Identity Management in South Sudan.

The benchmark visit is organized by IOM South Sudan mission in coordination with the IOM mission in Sudan within the framework of the ‘Technical Support to the Civil Registry Department’ project funded by the Government of Japan.

Sudan was reportedly selected not only because of its shared history with South Sudan; it is also known to have a strong civil registry and identity management systems within the East African Community (EAC).

Head of the South Sudanese delegation, Major Gen. Daniel Manyang said the visit will improve management of essential and vital facts of citizens and residents and help address issues related to lack of personal identification systems of citizens, stateless persons, and foreign residents.

“Cooperation between South Sudan and Sudan is very important, and we look forward to exchanging good practices and tapping into the experiences and lessons learned from our counterparts – lessons that we look forward to implementing when we return,” he explained.

The delegation will visit the headquarters of the Directorate of Passports and Civil Registry, Ministry of Interior in Khartoum and hold a series of meetings with authorities and technical experts working in the area of civil registry and identity management.

“IOM is committed to supporting the government of South Sudan in improving its civil registry and identity management towards an effective, robust and internationally compliant system that will help improve citizens and residents, including migrants, access to services and protection, and allow citizens to exercise their civil rights,” said Peter Van der Auweraert, the Chief of Mission of IOM South Sudan.

The five-day visit to Khartoum commenced on March 21, 2021.
