Malawi's Department of Immigration and Citizenship Services (DICS) is looking to fully digitise its operation by the end of 2019.

Techno Brain Group was awarded the contract to migrate the Department's analogue systems and facilitate e-services.

National Public Relations Officer for DICS Joseph Chauwa said with the current setup, people have to process applications and pay relevant fees in person at the Department.

All applications and payments are processed using analogue system, which requires that all documents and material be checked by several sub-departments and officials before being finalised.

The broader migration process has been split into two separate projects: e-visa and e-permit.
