Registry office renewal

The issue of the online reorganization of Greek registry offices, a process which is currently under way, is not one of minor importance.

Registry offices are indispensable departments when it comes to a country’s overall infrastructure, and up to now in Greece these departments have been defined by a sense of complete chaos.

The move toward modernizing and streamlining these services will prove beneficial to all: It will offer the possibility of direct follow-up regarding changes in the population, it will reduce red tape to a substantial degree, while it will also facilitate the everyday life of citizens.

In addition, it will make it more difficult to commit acts of fraud against social security funds and other public services, as well as against private individuals.

Registry offices are also home to invaluable information regarding a country’s history.

Despite a major delay, this country is eventually being brought up to date.
