Gemalto: Gabon selects Gemalto for fully integrated border and visa system

Amsterdam, Feb. 2, 2016
-
Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, has
been selected as end-to-end solution provider by Gabon's Department of
Homeland Security DGDI* to supply and implementa fully integrated border and
visa management system. The new scheme will strengthen national security,
improve operational efficiency and enhance the traveling experience for
people entering and leaving the Central African state.

The visa management system simplifies and speeds the issuance of visas,
e-Visas and resident's permits. This suite of applications was used to
createGabon's e-Visa portal servicein July enabling visitors to use the
Internet to apply for a visa to enter the country. Once the Electronic Travel
Authorization (ETA) is delivered, the visa is issued at Libreville
International Airport upon arrival.

The solution is built around the centralized, back-officeCoesys Visa and
Border Management System.This supports automation of queries to databases -
such asInterpol's - that alert authorities to potential threats and risks. In
addition, the Automated Border Control kiosks now offer travelers rapid,
'self-service' passport checks at the country's main airport which handles
around one million passengers annually.

The Border Intelligence module uses the data mined at the border. It offers
investigation tools for discovering new risk patterns, with a highly
intuitive "clicking" process. Its reporting app also provides valuable
information to drive tourism and prioritize national investment efforts.

"Gemalto's solution puts us in control of a secure and adaptable integrated
border management system that is field-proven. It also helps expedite the
border clearance process, cutting wait times and improving the customs
experience for travelers,"
said General Celestin Embinga, General Manager of DGDI, Gabon's Department of
Homeland Security. "In addition
,Gemalto's speed and commitment are tangible: our new e-Visa service was
defined and implemented within 14 weeks."

"We take pride in helping Gabon's authorities improve border security and
traveler satisfaction
," said Ari Bouzbib, Senior Vice President of Government Programs at Gemalto.
"Gemalto is delivering a unique solution which is flexible and fast to
implement. We also combine local resources and international expertise in
partnership with government bodies
.This is precisely what is appreciated by our growing number of customers in
Africa."
