In its bid to streamline the visa and immigration process for the foreigners visiting the state Nagaland has implemented the Immigration, Visa and Foreigners Registration & Tracking (IVFRT) project in Kohima and Dimapur districts.

The project will enable foreigners visiting the state to download Forms C and S well in advance, which they can fill up and upload online so that it can be processed well in time. The facility will also provide visitors all related information, including about the permits required for long or short stay in the border state.

Every hotel, guesthouse and even university and hospital must submit Form C within 24 hours of the arrival of a foreigner at their premises. This helps authorities in locating and tracking foreigners.  Form S - FSIS (Foreign Students Information System) captures the information about foreign nationals admitted in Indian educational institutions.

Visa issuance, immigration, and foreigner registration are crucial matters for the government as well as foreigners visiting the country.  Currently, hotels in Nagaland collect passports from foreigners and send the same to the FRO office for registration.
 
“It will ease the registration and immigration process for the foreigners. It will also help the department to maintain an online record of the entry and exist of foreigners in the district. IVFRT will also help us track them with the support of the online database,” said Videlalie Zashumo, superintendent of police, Dimapur.

IVRFT, under the home ministry, has been identified as one of the mission mode projects (MMPs) under the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP) to modernise and upgrade the immigration services. The core objective of this project is to develop and implement a secure and integrated service delivery framework that facilitates legitimate travellers while strengthening security.
