Document red tape eased

07 June 2018 | Local News

Following the opening of a hospital-based office to make the registration of births easier at the Rhino Park maternity ward, a similar office will be opened at the Lady Pohamba Private Hospital in the 2018/2019 financial year, said Khomas governor Laura McLeod-Katjirua during her State of the Region address

She said that headway has been made with the ministry of home affairs and immigration, with the implementation of the E-birth notification system at the Windhoek Central Hospital in the past financial year. This system tracks and traces modules for amendments on birth certificates.

“We have made significant improvements in terms of our population gaining access to birth certificates,” McLeod-Katjirua said.

Another development is a disability centre in Okuryangava that donated office space to the ministry. “This satellite office will be opened to bring services closer to the public in the coming financial year.”

She said that earlier this year, the ministry launched e-passports to improve the safety of travel documents, bringing it up to international standards. “Applications for the conversion of old South West African identification documents to Namibian IDs have been received, processed and issued, however, “this is an on-going process,” she said.
