A top Royal Oman Police (ROP) official said that the police has successfully linked the civil registry with more than 200 health institutions.
According to official, e-linking made it easy to transfer birth and death data directly to the civil status system, thus speeding up procedures for obtaining certificates related to birth and death.
Brigadier General Ali Saif Al Marbooy, Director General of Civil Status at the ROP said, “ROP has achieved an increasing success rate in activating the role of e-Government through a remarkable increase in electronic connectivity with government agencies.”
He added, “The linking aims to benefit from civil registration databases in the field of obtaining accurate and up-to-date data on individuals residing in the Sultanate and the ease of verification of the identity of the person using modern biometrics of the smart civil card.”
He explained that many government and private agencies have relied on the Smart Civil ID to verify the identity of people who have finished their transactions and to benefit electronically from the data shown on the civil identity. This is achieved through all the departments and sections of the civil status.
Any person wanting to get their Smart Civil ID made must be at least 15-years-old.
Al Marbooy pointed out that in order to achieve the Royal Oman Police's vision that the Civil Registry become the national reference point for personal data, the Directorate General of Civil Status has given great importance to linking government agencies with civil registry links.
More than 200 health institutions — through the Ministry of Health — have e-linking facilities with the civil registry, according to Al Marbooy.
“This has made it easy to transfer birth and death data directly to the civil status system, thus speeding up procedures for obtaining certificates related to birth and death,” he explained.
More than 80,000 birth and death certificates were issued in 2018. The e-linking has played an active role in providing accurate and up-to-date statistics to government agencies for future development.
The Brigadier General said that Oman’s police has strengthened its security and service systems by opening several facilities during the last period including geographic leadership centres in governorates, state police stations and service buildings within the framework of the police plan to expand its services and bring them closer to citizens and residents in one station.
