As a result of improved living conditions and rapid growth coming from the successful political and economic reforms in the Republic of Azerbaijan number of foreign nationals and persons without citizenship entering our country has grown rapidly every year and resulted in more intensive migration processes. For the purposes of strengthening public control over migration processes and improving registration of entrance and departure of foreign nationals and their registration at a place of residence an Integrated Migration Information System (IMIS) has been established under the State Migration Service (SMS). SMS IMIS allows monitoring and strict supervision over location and activities of foreign nationals and persons without citizenship starting from their entrance to the country.
