Citizen centers to offer several more documents

By the end of this week, the country’s Citizen Information Centers (KEP) will offer citizens several additional services as part of a drive to create an online connection between the national KEP network and a range of state bodies issuing official documents, Administrative Reform Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said Tuesday.

“With just one visit and one application,” citizens will be able to obtain a number of documents – including tax clearance certificates, birth certificates and certificates of citizenship, in a matter of minutes, Mitsotakis said. Citizens currently applying for documents from KEPs generally must wait one to 10 days.

Mitsotakis said the aim was to add several new services in the coming months. “The aim is, in the future, for there to be electronic access to all state services,” the minister told a press conference.
