On 11-12 April 2019, representatives of the Armenian Border Guard visited Vienna within the framework of a study trip organised by MIBMA. The goal of the trip was familiarization with the latest methods of travel document controls and printing techniques of ID and travel documents.
The Armenian delegation visited Vienna Airport and enjoyed a detailed demonstration of the E-Gate, an advanced automated document control system used in some EU airports.
Meetings and presentations were also conducted at the Austrian Criminal Investigation Service and the State Printing House.
The visit turned out to be a great success in that it helped to enhance the counterparts' knowledge and share experience in the field of document security and fighting cross-border crime.
