What we achieved
During the project timeline the scope of the project grew and we designed and developed four portals to support the new e-visa platform.
E-visa portal on which visitors would find out about the visa and have the ability to apply. If accepted they would then receive via email an e-visa that they could print or bring on a smartphone to border control to be scanned and checked
A CMS controlling the content of the website, but also providing a database in which St Helena officials have full control over accepting, rejecting or requesting further details on anyone applying for a e-visa
E-visa check-in used by border control to scan a unique barcode provided to all accepted visitors via email. This will then return a accepted, rejected or on hold status to officials who can immediately take the appropriate action
Airport portal when airlines can do a pre-check of visitors based on the details captured on a manifesto
Due to the nature of the information being collected, security of the data was a key priority. We successfully developed the server environment so it is encrypted and accessed via secure portals.
All users are managed via the Umbraco CMS so if one should get lost or breached it can easily be changed to prevent any further security.
