The Civil Registry Department will be open on the weekend of June 26th and 27th 2021 for the issuance of National Identity documents (IDs).

Following the recent receipt of consumables required for the securitization of IDs which have since been dispatched to all provinces and districts, the Registry will be issuing ID’s to candidate intending to sit for the General Certificate in Education Ordinary and Advanced Level in the November 2021 Examinations.

In a public notice, the Civil Registry Department advised all candidates intending to sit for the Ordinary and Advanced Level examinations that do not hold the required ID’s to report to their nearest Registry offices this Saturday and Sunday between 0800-1500 hours.

“Learners are therefore advised to bring original long or short birth certificate and copy of ID of either parent or a death certificate for those having a deceased parent,” wrote the Registry.

The exercise is specifically targeted at learners given the fast approaching registration deadline for November Examinations. Similar action will be taken in the future if the need to extend the rollout of this programme arises.
