The Ministry of Home Affairs, Immigration, Safety, and Security will conduct an outreach programme in all regions for the registration of national documents from February 5th until July.

This will include the registration of births of all ages, applications for duplicate birth certificates, applications for identity documents, and applications for duplicate IDs.

The ministry says these documents not only provide a sense of belonging but also establish a person's legal identity, which is necessary to access services like education, employment, and social grants.

The mass outreach programme will be conducted at identified places and for specific target groups, including those in hard-to-reach areas, vulnerable communities, and schools.

The calendar for the outreach programmes will be published on social media platforms, radio, and regional councils. 

Members of the public who want to apply for these documents are urged to visit the registration points when mobile teams are in their respective areas.

They can also visit the ministry's website for specific service requirements.

Applicants must bring the necessary supporting documents to the registration points to avoid delays.
