Parents can now do away with the hassle that comes with registering the birth of their baby, thanks to a new mobile application.

The Moments of Life (Families) app can replace the paper registration done at hospitals or the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority building. Parents can also use it to apply for the Baby Bonus scheme.
