The FINANCIAL -- An EU-funded border-management project has organized a study visit in the Netherlands for nine representatives of the Georgian authorities on the topic of document examination and identity fraud.
Throughout the five-day intensive course, experts addressed the topics of document security techniques, printing techniques, document examination, digital printing techniques, and security elements in documents, according to EU Neighbourhood Info.
The training course combined theory with practical exercises, during which the participants observed different techniques and equipment used in securing travel and ID documents. Special focus was made on security features in breeder documents, such as birth and marriage certificates, which are most vulnerable when it comes to forgery.
The Georgian officers trained will become document focal points in their respective locations and will not only play a key role in training others but will also ensure that the latest trends in document fraud are relayed to fellow officers.
The project on “Reinforcing the Capacities of the Government of Georgia in Border and Migration Management” is implemented by the International Organisation for Migration.
