black market for documents
The crisis in obtaining registration data has worsened in the recent period, and the electors have resorted to renewing old registration records on the one hand, and selling new ones on the black market on the other hand. But after this agreement, “the problem of obtaining registration data has moved its way to a solution, and citizens are now able to obtain the required documents in accordance with the rules and within the fees that must be paid by law,” the directorate said in a statement.
According to one of the chosen ones, the price of the entry is limited to the fees for the stamps that are placed on it, and the application for obtaining it. The Mukhtar was paid about ten thousand pounds to clear the transaction and deliver it to the concerned person. However, due to the high prices of fuel, the chosen ones receive wages ranging between thirty and fifty thousand pounds.
The solution that the General Directorate of Personal Status has temporarily resorted to does not put an end to the problem of obtaining registration data in the future. The price of paper and printing has become in dollars, and the cost of each paper reaches about ten thousand pounds, which necessitates an increase in the number of stamps to bridge the financial deficit, informed sources told Al-Modon.
The sources confirm that the crisis has moved to requests for passports. The circles of souls no longer deliver these requests to the elect at the present time, after the quantities that were previously available have run out.
In addition, the General Directorate of Personal Status reminded citizens that they should “keep copies of the registration data they obtain. This is to benefit from them and save time and effort of movement, especially the electronic individual registration statement issued by the Registry of the place of registration. It facilitates the issuance of a registration statement from the registry office closest to The place of residence, noting that the General Directorate is still waiting for the Ministry of Finance to decide on the file requesting the transfer of the necessary appropriation from the budget reserve to its budget, in order to print the additional registration data it needs, in order to avoid a recurrence of this crisis.
