BÀ RỊA-VŨNG TÀU — Since July 2, 2017, birth certificates, health insurance cards and residence papers of newborns in southern coastal Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu Province are being delivered right to their homes.
Notably, the documents are getting delivered just one day after their families submit the proper applications to local authorities.
This is part of a newly-approved plan by the province’s People’s Committee, aiming at improving the quality of public service delivery, saving time and cost for residents and affirming local authorities’ concern for the welfare of the children.
The family of the newborn would be informed in advance on the delivery of the papers, and representatives from local agencies, such as the commune’s People’s Committee, Women’s Union or head of the residential group, would bring the papers home.
Last August, central Đà Nẵng City launched a similar service. — VNS
