Kyrgyzstan to ban filling out of documents by hand

The State Registration Service intends to prohibit filling out certificates of civil status by hand. Deputy Chairman of SRS Dastan Dogoev said at a round table discussion in 24.kg news agency.

According to him, certificates of birth, death, marriage or divorce are easily forged. "These documents are filled out by hand. Ink is simply erased. There is no program to verify these documents," Dastan Dogoev said.

He added that SRS plans to change the forms of the certificates. "Protection will be improved. Moreover, we will prohibit manual filling in. This applies to all certificates of civil status," the official said.
