Official Removal of Fees for Identification Documentations on Its Way

While the Royal Government of Cambodia plans official removal of fees for basic identification documentations, some provinces have already introduced the commitment - according to local media report.

Cited from a Facebook post by the ruling party's lawmaker H.E. Sar Sokha, the report added that General Department of Identification, Ministry of Interior is processing a sub-decree to formally remove the service fees.

The basic identification documentations include identification card, family record book, residence book, as well as birth, marriage and death certificates.

While a formal removal is on its way, the commitment has already been introduced in some provinces of Cambodia, based on the same source.

The effort was seen as a supplementation to current hard work of the Royal Government of Cambodia to bring the public service closest to the people.

Between 2012 and 2016, the government through the Ministry of Interior has issued over 9.2 millions of identification cards alone for the people.
