From May 1, 2022, the Personal privacy law and the Law on Digital Signature will be followed, and the revision of the Law on Digital Signature was finally approved by the Joint Conference of the State Great Khural on December 17, 2021. From 1st of May, the work of issuing digital signatures to every citizen who has reached the age of 16 through all units of the State Registration Agency in territorial units, capital, sums, districts, and a couple of related tasks are being planned and implemented.
Within the framework of the implementation of the clause "Expand the digital service of state registration" included in the action plan of the Government of Mongolia for 2020-2024, General Registration Agency provides 22 types of references and 50 types of services through the Integrated System of State Digital Services /www.e-mongolia.mn/ with the support of the Smart Government Project.
Therefore self-service machines (Kiosk) have been introduced, so the citizens are able to receive the state services when they perform the personal data information by using the Kiosks, which means that citizens no longer need to get services from the registration officers, such as numbering and filing materials at the registration unit.
Today, more than 1,600,000 citizens are living in the capital city, and state registration services are provided through 9 districts, 6 integrated service centers of the capital, and 172 khoroos, which take up space for more than 70% of state services. The role of the state registration agency in the decentralization of public services is significant, and digitalization of registration services will be the beginning of works such as increasing the productivity of the government, bringing it closer to citizens, balancing the workload of employees, and improving the quality of government services.
