Summary

From 22 to 24 June in Almaty, the Office, in co-operation with the EU-funded Border Management in Central Asia Programme (BOMCA), organized a three-day train-the-trainer regional course on document security. Experts from Latvia and Slovakia shared best practices in international document security, including the identification of falsified travel documents, document control, the use of paper and polymer substrates in document security, conventional printing techniques, photo protection, secondary verification, and profiling techniques to identify potential criminals during the border crossing check-up procedure with some 20 border guards from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. The participants worked with genuine and falsified travel documents from different countries in order to utilize the new methods learned in the course.
