Egypt’s Minister of Justice Omar Marwan and Minister of Planning and Economic Development Hala El-Said launched a new batch of mobile documentation vehicles in Alexandria and Matrouh on Monday to serve citizens and visitors during the summer.
The new vehicles are equipped with modern equipment and devices to provide service to applicants in a civilised manner, in the morning and evening periods. The morning period runs from 12pm to 3pm and the evening period from 5 pm. to 9 pm.
Two of the vehicles will be deployed in Alexandria, one in Sidi Kreir and one in Rozana Village. The other eight vehicles will be deployed in Matrouh, at the following locations: Al-Hamam Police Station, kilo 82 “Zahran Mall,” Marina 2, Marina 4, New Alamein City, Porto Golf Marina, Marassi, and Sidi Abdel Rahman Police Station.
This brings the total number of mobile documentation vehicles in all governorates to 52.
In addition, the minister of justice directed to increase the number of branches that work in the evening shift, by allowing work in 35 branches distributed across 19 governorates. This brings the total number of branches that operate during the evening period to 145 branches.
El-Said indicated the launch of the mobile documentation vehicles comes within the framework of the ministry’s main role to develop means of providing government services in cooperation with all state agencies. She said the goal is to facilitate services for citizens and increase the effectiveness of all means that can be used for this purpose.
El-Said also pointed out that the ministry launched 250 mobile technology centres to facilitate the provision of government services to citizens.
She said 30 of these centres were allocated to cover all areas from Alexandria and Matrouh governorates through the North Coast.
Nearly 2,000 transactions were submitted during July at the mobile centres, El-Said explained.
She said that the mobile technology centres include all the equipment that enables them to perform transactions efficiently and easily, and they also use secure E-payment methods, in cooperation with eFinance.
The mobile documentation vehicles and mobile technology centres are part of the government’s efforts to improve the quality of government services and make them more accessible to citizens.
