LATE birth registrations will be free for the next two months.

This follows an announcement by the government to waive the late registration fee of $11.50 for the next two months.

Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said the amnesty commenced yesterday and ends on March 14.

"The government has waived the late birth registration fee of $11.50 for the next two months to allow Fijians to register," Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.

"Last year we registered 9075 Fijians who had not registered and these are all late registrations.

"Here in Fiji you know that you need to register your child within 12 months.

"However, if you register after 12 months which is late registration, you pay a fee of $11.50."
