Superintendent Mamanding S. Dibba, the spokesperson of the Gambia Immigration Department (GID), has called on the public especially non-citizens, to come forward and regularize their immigration status with his Department.

The GID spokesperson made these remarks during a press briefing at Immigration headquarters in Banjul recently.

According to Superintendent Dibba, they are confident that their services are accessible everywhere in the country with the start of their new scheme.

He urged the general public to move to their enrollment centers within the regions of the country to get their documents and not to wait for GID officers to meet them in the streets or elsewhere and asked them; that from now to April 2020, they will be out in public places within the country, to enforce immigration regulations.

Olimatou Jammeh, Commissioner in charge of Processing at the GID said there is a new Scheme of IDs which was rolled out since the 6th of January 2020, for both citizens and non-citizens alike; that the Government of the Gambia has signed a contract with Semlex Company in 2018, to issue residence permits, aliens and other non-Gambian ID cards which were manually issued before; that the operations of this Company started since October 2018.

Commissioner Jammeh said as part of their contract, Semlex is assigned to issue residential permits and other ID documents for Gambians and non-Gambians alike, under this new scheme.

“The new scheme has come up to co-opt the issue of manual issuance of residential permits and we will like to share with the general public the new tariffs given for the acquisition of these documents,” she concludes.
