Our Center Develops Innovative Solutions!

Our Centre also focuses on developing innovative solutions and tools such as the PEPMII Mobile App


PEPMII Mobile Application

PEPMII Mobile App validates data integrity and passport holder of both Machine-Readable Passports (MRP’s) and e-Machine Readable Passports (e-MRP’s) in 3 steps

  • Scanning the Machine-Readable-Zone (MRZ) using the device camera
  • Read the IC in the passport using NFC (e-MRP’s) or automatically calculate the MRZ check digits (MRP’s)
  • Compares the IC picture with live picture, providing reliable matching information


Our five to ten days trainings are designed to build the skills and deepen the understanding and knowledge of African Member States on migration and border management. We provide basic and advanced trainings which can be supplemented by training of trainers (ToT) sessions to build a pool of experts across the continent who will be responsible for facilitating training rollouts at national or continental levels.
