Over One Million Citizens Have Received IDs

January-April 2010

Venezuela’s Administrative Service of Identification, Migration and Immigration (SAIME) has granted 1,477,290 IDs to Venezuelan citizens during the first four months of 2010, stated Dante Rivas, director of the SAIME, on Wednesday. Rivas added that out of that figure, 17.91 percent -264,000 IDs- were granted to children and adolescents.

“It was possible through the programs developed by the Venezuelan government around the country. These programs have promoted not only ID granting in traditionally excluded areas, but also data enrollment and updating in the electoral registry”, stated Rivas.

Moreover, the director of the SAIME informed that this year 631,000 passport appointments were granted, including 150,000 for children and adolescents.

“These numbers show the government’s intention to have efficient institutions that satisfy all users. This improvement policy of requirements in the SAIME is the first front war to fight corruption,” pointed out Rivas.
