Oman : Fingerprint reader service at Notary Public office launched.

The Ministry of Justice yesterday launched the fingerprint reader service at the Notary Public offices in a step towards digital transformation. As many as 54 devices were put into operation in the first stage, which will be completed later by providing more than one device in each of the 60 Notary Public offices across the Sultanate.

The system, which is linked to the Civil Status at the Royal Oman Police (ROP), aims at providing maximum security to official records issued by the Notary Public offices and to save time and effort at codification of the data of the visitors, including women without having to reveal their faces. The system is part of a package of electronic services, which will link up with 17 government entities, including the Administrative Affairs Council for the Judiciary, ROP, the ministries of Finance, Housing, Manpower, Commerce and Industry and Civil Service, which will include the computerisation of the administrative and financial aspects in the ministry, including tenders, procurement, recruitment, warehouses, as well as special services related to archiving official records issued by the Notary Public and some dating back to the first half of the last century.
