POND ISLAND–The Department of Civil Registry (Census Office) at the new Government Administration Building has introduced a temporary walk-in service, where persons can make use of the services offered without an appointment during specific times on specific days.
The walk-in service began on Wednesday and will continue until February 14.
For the walk in service, persons will be able to apply for their Driver’s Licence (DL), Identification Cards (IDs), Passport and Registration Forms without appointments.
The walk-in service will be done only on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays between 3:30pm and 5:30pm. A maximum of 30 numbers will be given out for persons to make use of the walk-in service on these days and times.
Additionally, on Wednesday, January 31, Wednesday, February 7, and Wednesday, February 14, from 12:30pm to 5:30pm, there will be walk-ins for Registration Forms only.
As it relates to the Simpson Bay-based Public Service Centre (PSC) (not abbreviated PSS as inadvertently mentioned in an article that appeared in The Daily Herald last week), the Department of Civil Registry resumed operations at PSC in Simpson Bay on Wednesday. Prime Minister Leona Romeo-Marlin said Information Technology (IT) workers could not fix all the issues being experienced there. As a result, the Department will start by offering services for persons in need of registration forms and certificates/declarations. PSC in Simpson Bay will open on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8:00am to 12:00pm and from 1:00pm to 3:30pm. On Wednesdays the Department will open from 8:00am to 12.00pm.
Prime Minister Leona Romeo-Marlin thanked the Department of Civil Registry and the PSC for their efforts to alleviate the long lines that the public has been experiencing.
