The Suhurupaya building will be converted into a one-stop-shop to obtain passports, NICs, and all other documents related to births, marriages, and deaths, Public Security Minister Tiran Alles informed.
“Apart from that, the Registrar General’s Department will be brought to the Suhurupaya building,” he also said.
He informed us about this new move at a news briefing that the one-stop-shop will be open for the public within two months.
After the opening of this one-stop shop, the people will be able to obtain all the above documents from the same building, without any trouble, the Minister said.
While establishing 50 new centers for the process of obtaining passports without delay by the end of June, it has been decided to issue e-passports by the end of this year, Public Security Minister Tiran Alles said.
“Those 50 new centers at fifty District Secretariats will be established to collect photos and fingerprints,” he said.
Also, he said that another five branches attached to the issuing of National Identity Cards (NICs) will also be established.
