The Registrar General ‘s Department RGD will be suspending the printing of the first free birth certificate for newborns, for the next two weeks.

The Department will also be limiting the maximum number of certificates, which can be applied and paid for effective today, until next Friday September 30.

The limitations come, due to supply chain issues brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The RGD has been facing a supply challenge with the security paper it uses to print certificates.
