With the deadline for registering for a key-card system, a key has been added to the public record, and the government has started the process of approving the registrations.
In an article posted on the government’s website, the government said the new system would “ensure that the key-passport registration and issuance processes are as transparent as possible” and would help ensure that people can obtain passports without having to be registered.
“As the number of people applying for a passport increased in the past few years, the Government of B.C. implemented an aggressive registration and identification system to ensure the safety and security of citizens,” the government statement read.
“In the past two years, more than 8,000 new passports were issued to new B.V. citizens.”
With the deadline set for registering, it is not clear whether this will be a full roll out, or if it will be limited to a few municipalities.
If you are a B.v. citizen and need to register your passport, please contact the B.c.
Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MTOI).
It is possible to register for the new key system.
The registration fee is $10 and there are no age restrictions.
The key system will be implemented in B.ca, B. C. and B.T.M. by the end of this year.
