Police Connected to AW Passenger Module

The Vanuatu Transnational Crime Unit (TCU) at the Vanuatu Police Force now has direct access to real-time data on the Passenger Processing Module in ASYCUDA.

TCU Officers are now able to monitor passenger movements across Vanuatu borders, their visas and their passport details.

In the past TCU usually requests this information from the Statistics Office (NSO) and it can take up to weeks for NSO to provide this information.

With this access, TCU are now able to access this data from the comfort of their offices with a click of a button, so to speak. Talks are already in place to link the Passenger Module with the Interpol system used by the Police to target persons of interest. Similar connection between ASYCUDA and Interpol has been achieved in some African countries.
