Nassau, Bahamas – Office of the Attorney-General Hon. Allyson Maynard-Gibson, QC Attorney-General and Minister of Legal Affairs:
Just last week, I announced that now, Marriage Officers and Justices of the Peace are listed online. Marriage Officers can initiate and complete marriage licenses through the Civil Registry Information System on the Registrar General Department’s website. Citizens may find JPs online at the Office of the Attorney General’s website.
During that announcement, I indicated that we expected to launch a new online Notary Application System and that all licensed Notaries Public would be listed on the Office of the Attorney General’s website by the end of 2016. I am happy to announce that we have exceeded our own expectations. Tomorrow, Friday November 11th, this system will be available for the use of Notaries Public and the list of licensed Notaries Public will also be easily accessible for the Bahamian public online.
This new online Notary Application System represents yet another bold step toward the digitalization of essential government services; the modernization of processes in the Office of the Attorney-General and Ministry of Legal Affairs; and the enhancement of the ease of doing business in The Bahamas. I am told that it also makes The Bahamas the first country in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) to implement a system of this kind.
I commend out Team at the Office of the Attorney General, the Department of Information Technology and the Point Alliance, for realizing ahead of schedule this important undertaking.
