Immigration officers get new uniform design

Immigration officers get new uniform design

The Department of Immigration has updated the uniforms of all its officers.
It was unveiled to the public for the first time earlier this week.

Persons visiting the Department of Immigration on Monday, February 15, were the first to have a look at the new designs.

Chief Immigration Officer Ian Penn said both him and his officers approved of the new uniforms.

“The change of uniform is just one part of the department’s ongoing initiatives, and I am very happy and proud to see the new image being portrayed at our Ports of Entry,” Penn said.

“It is also important to note that senior officers will continue to wear a white shirt which serves to distinguish seniority from other officers at the ports,” he added.

Also sharing similar sentiments was Minister for Immigration, Vincent Wheatley.

He said: “I am quite pleased to see another positive change within the Immigration Department as it continues to build upon its service to the public. The new uniform is one of many changes being made in the department with many more to come.”

The new uniforms are just one of the many new features of the Department of Immigration, which also recently introduced a fully online automation system between itself and the Labour Department.
