A new mechanised office for civil services has been installed by Egypt's interior ministry at Cairo's shopping mall in Nasr City, City Stars, to allow Egyptians to issue all their official certificates.
The step is in line with the ministry's plan to develop and automate the services offered to citizens.
The ministry provided a number of self-service machines on 25 January that can be used for issuing birth certificates in four major places: Cairo, Sharm El-Sheikh, and Hurghada airports, in addition to a civil sector office in Abbasiya district.
The time- and effort-saving machines at Cairo International Airport are seeing a huge turnout to issue birth certificates, the ministry said in a statement.
The government adopted a plan to move towards digitisation to reducing human intervention and develop services offered to the public, according to local news reports.
