Fiji’s Ministry of Justice will Justice will accept the Voter Identification Cards (VICs) issued through the Electronic Voter Registration as a valid form of identification (ID) to access all services available through the ministry as of November 15, 2012.

“The Financial Intelligence Unit and the Judiciary have led the way in incorporating Voter Identification Cards as a legitimate form of ID,” the Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said in a statement.

“By continuing to increase the functionality of the card as legitimate ID within Fiji, this will be a significant convenience to all those Fijians who have registered.”

Any Fijian who has registered to vote and who possesses a VIC will be able to  access services provided by the Registrar of Titles Office, the Births, Deaths & Marriages Registry, the Companies Office (which includes the Moneylenders Registry), and the Official Receiver’s Office.

“We continue to encourage other Government Ministries to accept the Voter Card as valid ID,” said Sayed-Khaiyum.

“This will greatly improve the delivery of Government services to those Fijians for whom this is their first or only form of ID.”

Voter registration centers, where VICs are issued, will be open across the country until August 31.
