Dubai Municipality has beaten the clock by putting 90% of its services online - one year ahead of a deadline set by H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice-president and prime minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai.

The organisation now offers 518 services online - the most commonly used being online applications for DM Clinic Health Certificates and Food Control Health Certificates. Over two million transactions have been carried out online.

The Municipality must now reach a second target of ensuring that 50% of all transactions are carried out online.

Salem Al Shair, eServices director of Dubai eGovernment, said he believes the public are now confident paying online.
