Border Management Authority (BMA)

In a significant step towards enhancing border security and facilitating safe travel and trade, President Cyril Ramaphosa will preside over the launch of the Border Management Authority (BMA) in Musina, Limpopo, today.

This event marks the official establishment of the BMA as a schedule 3 (A) public entity on April 1, 2023.

The creation of the BMA signifies the implementation of an integrated border management platform for South Africa.


With a single command and control structure, the BMA aims to support the achievement of secure borders, safe travel, and efficient trade processes.

As part of the launch ceremony, President Ramaphosa will welcome President Emmerson Mnangagwa of the Republic of Zimbabwe.


The two leaders will engage in official talks and undertake a guided tour of the Beitbridge border, accompanied by members of the Inter-Ministerial Coordinating Committee (IMCC) on the BMA.

Following the border visit, President Ramaphosa will officiate the launch of the BMA at the Musina Show Grounds. As a symbolic gesture, he will present a Sword to the Commissioner of the BMA, delegating the powers to lead the third law enforcement authority in the Republic.

Since its inception, the BMA has seen notable successes, including intercepting stolen vehicles. Its establishment was originally proposed in June 2013, with the objective of addressing weaknesses in border management highlighted by the National Intelligence Coordinating Committee (NICOC) 2012 Feasibility Study.

The responsibilities of the BMA include executing frontline border law enforcement functions related to port health, immigration control, access control, biosecurity, food safety, phyto-sanitary control, land border infrastructure development and maintenance, and border information and risk management.

The BMA aims to respond effectively to the challenges, threats, and opportunities that arise in the border environment.


While safeguarding South Africa’s borders, it also strives to fulfill the country’s national, regional, and global developmental responsibilities and uphold human rights imperatives.
