Civil status departments to be linked electronically
Citizens can get printed forms of civil status extracts from anywhere
Citizens will be able to get a printed extract from their civil status documentation (ikhraj kayd) from anywhere in Lebanon within three to four months, said Minister of Interior and Municipalities, Raya El Hassan.
The regional civil status departments will be connected to the central office through the broadband Internet network or through wireless where broadband is not available, El Hassan said.
Citizens will no longer have to go to the caza where they were born to get their civil status extracts. The documents will be printed and therefore the errors that used to occur when they were handwritten will be avoided.
Once Ogero provides wireless service to the four or five areas where broadband is not available, the Ministry could have the new civil extract service up and running within one month, El Hassan said.
She said that the Ministry also plans to launch an online portal that citizens can access to report complaints pertaining to the Internal Security Forces.
