Interior minister

An interior ministry (sometimes called ministry of internal affairs or ministry of home affairs) is a government ministry responsible for internal affairs, particularly public security, emergency management, civil registration and identification, supervision of regional and local governments, conduct of elections, public administration and immigration (including passport issuance) matters. Such a ministry is often headed by a minister of the interior, a minister of internal affairs or a minister of home affairs.

In some jurisdictions there is no department named "interior ministry", the relevant responsibilities being allocated to other departments.
