Waiting in a long line to register your child’s birth certificate will now be a thing of the past.

This is after the government launched the new birth registration mobile app called e-Services under the digitalFiji app this afternoon, allowing for the electronic registration of the birth of a child.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says this makes one tedious process easier for new parents who frankly already have enough to worry about when welcoming a newborn baby.

“As of today, we’re doing away with some of the stress faced by new families, making the days and weeks following the birth of a child less of a hassle by bringing the birth registration process online for the very first time. We’re saving new families valuable time –– time that can be spent doing just about everything else required to care for and nurture a new baby.”

Bainimarama says the days of waiting in long lines are over as through this new app, mothers can register their child from the hospital bed or the comfort of their own home.

He says for any birth that is registered electronically through the app, the normal fee for a copy of the first birth certificate will be waived.

“For the time being, this new app will only be available to register births at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital. During the pilot phase of the rollout, we want to hear from all the new parents who use this application about how they’re finding the functionality and usability so we can make improvements necessary before the nationwide rollout.”

The Prime Minister adds that parents need to download the Birth Registration App, follow the instructions on the screen and submit their registration electronically.

Once the online registration is completed, new parents can schedule a set time to arrive at the BDM office, where they can collect the birth certificate of their newborn child.
