TWO new Integrated Border Management Service servers were launched by Minister for Defence National Security and Immigration Joketani Cokanasiga yesterday, opening the door to efficient data management at the Nadi International Airport.

Immigration Department director Nemani Vuniwaqa said the cost of the new IBMS servers ranged from $20,000 to $30,000.

"IBMS was introduced last year in April and now 12 months down the line, we are introducing two new servers for this system," Mr Vuniwaqa said.

"The system is an integrated one whereby all these different modules are well integrated.

"Modules like the passport module, the visa module and the permit module are all integrated. We wanted all these modules to communicate with each other and to be integrated."

Mr Vuniwaqa said some of the agencies they worked with, such as tourism and the Fiji Bureau of Statistics, wanted specific data

"Information like how long tourists are here for, how much money they will be spending while they are here. These are some of the examples of the data that is needed by these respective agencies."

He said these issues would be addressed by the new servers.

Mr Cokanasiga agreed the IBMS also contributed to border security.
