PARENTS of newborns will no longer have to go through the “hassle” of presenting themselves at the Birth, Death and Marriage office after the rollout of the birth registration app.
The Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama who officiated the launcat Suvavou House, said until this launch, parents had to show up, in-person, at a BDM Office in order to initiate the birth registration process.
“They had to queue up, and spend their morning or afternoon waiting and filling out paperwork. Now, those days are over. That process, through this new app, can now begin as soon as they decide on the newborn child’s name, be it from the hospital bed or the comfort of their own home.”
Present at the event were nine mothers and 11 babies- two set of twins, together with the Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation, Mereseini Vuniwaqa and permanent secretaries.
