Official Fees Exempted for the Digital Civil Registration Service
The Ministry of Interior has proposed the draft Ministerial Regulation Prescribing on the Operation of Digital Civil Registration System. This draft is to exempt service fees for the digital civil registration service system to lighten the cost load for citizens.
Currently, the Department of Provincial Administration has provided services on the digital civil registration system via D. DOPA application and BORA Web Portal (thportal.bora.dopa.go.th). Fee exemption has been granted from the past year until 12 March 2023 for certain services, such as notification of relocation, certifying a copy of house registration, registration record and birth registration.
To provide public services effectively, conveniently and appropriately under the current situation, it is appropriate to exempt service fees for two types of services as follows:
1) Services according to the Ministerial Regulation Prescribing Fees and Exempting Fees Related to Civil Registration B.E. 2562 (2019) such as providing and certifying a copy of house registration, birth and death registration which currently charge at the rate of 10 THB per copy and notification of birth, death and relocation which currently charge at the rate of 20 THB per copy.
2) Services according to the Ministerial Regulation Prescribing Non-Thai Citizens to Comply with Civil Registration B.E. 2562 (2019) such as notification of birth, death and relocation which currently charge at the rate of 20 THB per copy.
Now the cabinet has given its approval and the draft will soon become effective.
