"This is part of the national effort to ensure that birth is the only entry point to the country's national population register.

"With one entry point into the population register, at birth, the Department can ultimately eradicate late birth registrations as well as succeed in its quest to eliminate fraud and corruption related to the production of identity documents, including identity theft," the department said in a statement.

A secure, credible and accurate National Population Register will assist the government in order to plan adequately to fulfil its social contract with the citizenry of the country as well as safeguard all those within its borders.

The department is also striving towards a situation where all those who turn 16 years of age can be timeously issued with identity documents.

Residents of the Knysna Local Municipality are urged to bring along supporting documentation, such as marriage certificates, clinic cards and birth certificates, in order to access the Home Affairs services which will be provided at the Khayalethu Hall on Friday.
