  3. Vision, Mission And Values

  4. Mandate to deliver Civic Services The DHA is custodian, protector and verifier of the identity and status of citizens and other persons resident in South Africa as recorded on the National Population Register. This includes issuing traveling documents. (National legislation must provide for the acquisition, loss and restoration of citizenship: Chapter 1: Constitution of South Africa)

  5. Mandate to deliver Immigration Services The DHA controls, regulates and facilitates immigration and the traffic of persons through ports of entry. It also services foreign missions; enforces the Immigration Act; and determines the status of asylum seekers and refugees in accordance with international obligations. Both civic and immigration functions impact on the identity and security of citizens and other residents. They have a critical role in ensuring the security and integrity of the state and society.

  6. Role of the DHA in the state and society • Assuring the security of the state. Security is broadly defined, as in the constitution, including the rights to peace and stability and the pursuit of a better life. The fight against crime and corruption is a key element. • Enabling all citizens to have equal access to rights and services in the interests of development, building democracy and fighting poverty. • Furthering national interests in a globalised and highly competitive world by the facilitation of business and trade and by the strategic acquisition of scarce skills. • Support for SADC development and cooperation, including through the progressive and secure facilitation of the movement of peoples and trade. • Transformation of the DHA in support of a well organised state that can lead development and deliver secure, caring and efficient services.

  7. Overview of Progress 2009- 2010 • Service delivery improvements achieved through the turnaround programme, e.g. clients notified via SMS functionality, customer service centre, improved turnaround times over past 2 years, etc. GCIS surveys indicate this is especially appreciated in the rural areas and by the poor. • There have been ongoing improvements to systems and processes, including their management. Examples are: • New passport system implemented in April 2009. • Security features improved on birth certificate, e.g. particulars of mother on abridged certificate • Online birth and death registration at 119 Hospitals • Implemented Track and Trace functionality for birth registration, amendments, rectifications, passports, citizenship and some permits • Online verification rolled out to 273 offices • 3rd Party online fingerprint verification piloted with SABRIC, with a view to commercial institutions verifying identity on line for a fee in future • Live capture for passports implemented at 40 offices
