The office, formerly located at the corner of Nguyen Du and Cach Mang Thang Tam Streets in District 1, has been moved to 196 Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Street in District 3, reports Tuoi Tre

According to Colonel Nguyen Van Anh, head of the office, the new building is three times larger than the old location and is equipped with an automated information technology system that will expedite its services.

To avoid the long lines that characterized the Nguyen Du location, the new facility has a large air-conditioned waiting area.

We imagine that for most people who had to frequent the old office, this comes as welcome news.

No word on what will become of the run-down building on Nguyen Du that has a certain decrepit charm to it.
