The Department of Somaliland Immigration (SIBC) is the principal authority to execute and implement the immigration laws of Somaliland. Established under the Ministry of Interior (Government of Somaliland), it is assigned with the responsibility of monitoring, controlling and regulating entry, exit and stay of foreign nationals in Somaliland. Furthermore, it shoulders the obligation of managing entry and exit (Arrival and Departure) of Somaliland citizens to and from Somaliland.

The Department of Immigration is working in close coordination with other stakeholders for safer migration and tourism promotion. We have been promoting tourism via ‘On Arrival’ Tourist visa at HGA –  International Airport of Somaliland, where our officials are at work 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. We are constantly looking for ways to introduce reforms and innovation in our service delivery as well as to accomplish our roles & responsibilities dictated by the governing immigration rules and regulations.
