DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A COMPUTERIZED VISA PROCESSING INFORMATION SYSTEM (A CASE STUDY OF BRITISH EMBASSY). A RESEARCH PROJECT MATERIAL ON COMPUTER SCIENCE
This project is aimed at improving a long lasting processing system on visa. It is also aimed at keeping records of all immigrants and for processing visa with view of modifying it into a full computerized system. The study covers the areas of application entry, record verification, list generation, code numbering and maintenance of the managed information. The new system developed is very easy to use, and gives answers to report generation. Problems which evolved from the existing system as a result of inefficiency will be notified and new system design implemented.
During the analysis, examination of written documents, oral interviews as well as textbooks, journal will be used for data collection and also a source of information. Also, it is expected that a program will be produced in order to help the Embassy service process and document visa. With references to the rapid growth in the information technology, it is deemed necessary to develop a fully computerized system for the processing of visa in British Embassy service through this project.
BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
In this project, design and implementation of a computerize visa processing information system is based on how you can get lost of information about our service, from advice on how to apply for a visa, to news about immigration policy changes. I hope you find it helpful.
UK visas is the overseas arm of Britain’s integrated border management. We have visa offices in 160 locations throughout the world. The largest handles 300,000 applications a year; the smallest less than 10. we issue visas to 80% of those who apply and stop only those who are a significant immigration risk to the UK. We process over 90% of straightforward applications within 24 hours. This is a record of which we are proud, but we aim to do even better.
Our new mission statement explains how UK visas will deliver the border objectives set by our parent department, the home office and foreign and common wealth office; to achieve a balance between managing travel and migration and preventing illegal immigration
Our goals are
· to bring communities together
· to improve Britain’s competitiveness as a destination for travel, trade, migration and investment
· to deliver for money
· to earn public confidence
