The World Health Organisation (WHO) declared a COVID-19 pandemic on March 11, 2020. More than 18 months later, the world is slowly accepting that the COVID-19 virus will be endemic – meaning that the virus will be permanently circulating. With regional vaccination rates climbing, considerations around travel corridors and risk-management to enable cross-border movements within the region have resumed and countries are now considering options for easing border restrictions to restore related social and economic benefits and supply-chain security which have been severely affected.
As the economic and social impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have become more acute, and as vaccines are being delivered, governments in the Pacific have been considering options for reopening their borders. As debt levels grow in the region, there are significant pressures to reopen borders quickly particularly for countries with a greater reliance on tourism and whereby governments have provided significant financial support for tourism businesses.
Importantly, the pandemic has also become an impetus for countries to streamline their border procedures and invest in digital infrastructure to ensure the smooth flow of people and goods and services across the borders. These considerations include:
In addition, the project also focuses on the development and implementation of an integrated border management system in Pacific countries to mitigate risks and economic impacts in case of pandemics. UNDP, working closely with IOM and UNCTAD, supports border management agencies in Fiji, Palau, and Vanuatu in the following subjects:
The specific outputs for the project are:-
There is a recognized need to engage a Maritime Safety and Security Consultant under the Pacific Integrated Border Management Project to provide technical guidance and advice on the safety and security operational procedure and integrated border management system at Palau and Vanuatu Seaports, in addition to Fiji Port.
