Bahamas: Five govt services to go online in 2021 as part of focus on digitization

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance J Kwasi Thompson said that in the first quarter of next year, at least five government services will go online, including the renewal of driver’s licenses and the ability to obtain copies of birth certificates and marriage certificates.

Thompson said it will become easier to interact with the government because of this focus on digitization, which he noted was just one component of a broader promotion of the digital economy.

“The work at the passport office, which has been getting rave reviews for simplifying and digitizing the passport renewal process, is an indication of what is possible,” Thompson stated during a Ministry of Finance press conference on Monday, December 21, 2020.

“…Going into 2021, Bahamians throughout the country will see these changes manifested at the Road Traffic Department, the Registrar General’s Department, the Department of Social Services, the Judiciary Department, the Ministry of Finance and Department of Immigration.”
