Importance of Civil Status Certificates
The importance of Civil Status certificates cannot be over emphasized, especially in Cameroon, a country of law.
Birth Certificates guarantee access to Identity, Nationality and basic social services.
The Marriage Certificate is a legal proof of the union between spouses.
The Death Certificate on it’s part makes it possible to perpetuate the family patrimony and to improve governance.
