Welcome to Zambia Department of Immigration
Director General's Message
The world is experiencing an unprecedented growth in global cross border migration which offers both opportunities as well as security risks for receiving countries. To counter the security risk which comes with the current migratory trends, the Department of Immigration continues to develop the capabilities to manage the rising tide of complex threats in both the border and internal environments.
The Department has over the years striven to improve its border management systems by embracing the use of latest information communication technologies (ICTs), pushing its operations to a paperless status. This and many other initiatives are helping the Department to see to it that the majority of genuine migrants can move easily and eﬀortlessly across the border without unnecessary delay, while our Immigration Officers continue to focus their attention on undesirable, non-compliant migrants.
