The Syrian Interim Government (SIG) said that the Citizens Service Center resumed the certification of high school, basic and preparatory education diplomas following two-week break due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Quoting an official at the Citizens Service Center, SIG said that the reason for the delay in the processing of requests is the precautionary measures being taken to confront the pandemic.
The official said that the Center informed the Turkish authorities about the suspension of its work, adding that the Turkish authorities said that they will take this matter into consideration. With regards to applying for Turkish universities, the official said that producing a notice about sending a corticate via the post office will be sufficient to justify the delay and a reason to accept the completion of the papers at a later time.
SIG pointed out that since the emergence of the coronavirus pandemic, requests for certification of diplomas have been received exclusively by mail, adding that the requests are dealt with within a maximum of two then certified and sent back to the concerned person. The reason for the accumulation of requests at the present time is the two-week break.
The official indicated that the Center works at its maximum capacity from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm and deals with 150 requests every day then sends them back the next day to the provinces they came from. (Source: SOC’s Media Department)
