Jamaica News: The Registrar General’s Department (RGD) is appealing to persons who have applied and paid for documents, to collect them now.
Marketing and Planning Manager at the RGD, Nicole Whyte, told JIS News that there are thousands of uncollected birth, marriage and death certificates in storage at the agency’s offices islandwide.
“Over the years, persons have applied for their marriage, birth and death certificates and have not come to collect them,” she said.
The Manager noted that the RGD discontinued its delivery service some time ago, so persons are expected to collect certificates at the RGD location they would have indicated when they applied.
“So, when persons apply for these certificates, they must indicate or state which location they want them to be sent and should pick up the documents at the said location. All certificates are printed at the head office at Twickenham Park and then dispatched to the various locations for collection,” she pointed out.
Persons may contact the RGD at 876-749-0550 or 876-619-1260 and make arrangements for collection.
