Statement Of Policy Initiative From The Chief Immigration Officer

The Immigration Service in Sierra Leone has been a historical relic to public service delivery.  After Independence, this service was performed by or in the hands of the External Affairs Ministry, with a policy initiative to conduct, oversee and manage the affairs of the issuance of travel documents to and from Sierra Leone, and of the movement of both nationals and non-nationals into and out of the country.

Since 1964, the policy objective was thrust in the hands of the Sierra Leone Police Force under the supervision of the Ministry of Internal Affairs until this present time.  The initiative was transformed into a security objective, with the Police Force managing the affairs of the egress and ingress of both non-nationals and nationals of the country.
