Deputy Immigration Controller Hamid Fathulla said on Sunday that with the introduction of the Passenger Information System (PIS), Immigration would receive information on passengers before their arrival in Maldives. He added that the system would enable authorities to be more prepared about arriving passengers.

According to Fathulla, the Immigration department at present is only able determine information of passengers once they land in the Maldives.

"But when the system is established, the plane would send us the details of the passengers when the board. So it will be easy for us to clear them before they arrive. And we will also know beforehand the people who have been deported from the Maldives by referring to the blacklist," he said.

Fathulla revealed that the issues with the current system allows people who have been deported to re-enter the Maldives, while adding that the new system would solve that problem.

"Insha Allah we will introduce the system very soon."

The PIS is being used in many countries around the world.
