Dubai e-Government has created a facility to give users a single password for all of its online services.

The single sign-on facility is known as e-Jawaz comes as part of a revamping of the site, aimed at making it more user-friendly. Salem Al Shair, director of e-Services for Dubai e-Government says, “Government web services will gradually integrate towards a unified portal, with a uniform look running through the individual web offerings.”

To activate e-Jawaz users must register, providing a user ID, password, first and last name and an email address. Applications will be vetted by the Dubai Naturalisation and Residency Department’s (DNRD) database to ensure that only genuine nationals can use the services. Leiutenant Colonel Khalid Lootah, head of the IT section of DNRD adds, “We can also guarantee that genuine users get top quality service in keeping with the e-Government’s vision of providing online services meeting global standards.”

Dubai e-Government was launched last year and provided 14 services at first. This figure has climbed to almost 100 and e-Government speculates that it will double in the next year.
