AL AWIR IMMIGRATION
STREAMLINED DEPORTATION PROCESS
PARTNERED WITH DUBAI IMMIGRATION TO STREAMLINE THE DEPORTATION PROCESS OF IMMIGRATION VIOLATORS
The goal for this project was to facilitate and simplify procedures for immigration violators to leave the UAE by eliminating all the bottlenecks that immigration officials had to deal with on a daily basis.
The detention center at Al Awir in Dubai had a rigid process in place where deportees had to go through multiple steps before being able to leave the country. Issues in security clearance, document requirements, airline approvals, etc. were all problems immigration officials had to resolve for violators to travel.
This lead to significant inefficiencies, as in many cases deportees arrive at the airport but needed to be transported back to their location at Al Awir detention center as their travel procedures turned out to be incomplete. This imposed high logistical and accommodation costs on the UAE's immigration authority (GDFRA).
DUBZ has worked extensively with GDRFA on providing a remote airport solution at Al Awir detention center. This included an innovative process and technology to align with airlines and receive their approval from the detention center itself before printing boarding passes and tagging passengers' baggage on-site.
This simply eliminated the hassle of transporting the deportees and getting them back to the detention center, if rejected. It also eliminated the costs of changing tickets and that of logistics and lodging. Processing time at the airport was also reduced significantly.
All is now done directly on site. With a boarding pass in hand, deportees are guaranteed to board the flight and head to their home country.
