The Ministry of Interior has improved civil registration services by adopting the digital system to provide people with more convenience in seeking these services at district offices, or local registration offices, in line with the “new normal” situation from the COVID-19 outbreak.
It has submitted a draft ministerial regulation on the operations of officials in digital civil registration services to the Cabinet, which approved it on 7 April 2021.
The Ministry of Interior reported that the new services would be quick and reduce congestion for the people seeking civil registration services.
In the initial stage, the digital civil registration services cover three issues, namely the checking of personal records through the linkage center, reservations for civil registration, and moving reports at a terminal point. In the next stage, these services will cover the making of certified copies of civil registration, relocation, birth reports, and death reports.
The Ministry of Interior has developed the verification of a person’s identity through the digital system and applications on mobile phones for the storing of digital ID.
Those who want to use the digital civil registration services may seek to register for identity verification with the registrar at district offices, or local registration offices.
