Dubai citizens can now make online payments for public services at no additional cost, using the ePay facility on Dubai eGovernment’s payment gateway. The service is provided by Dubai eGovernment as part of its goal of offering a unified mode of payment for public services. This will benefit citizens who had to previously pay a processing or user fee to make online payments for some government services. ePay is a secure online payment mode that allows registered users to pay for public utilities or fines using the eDirham card under approval of the UAE Ministry of Finance and Industry or a credit card. Among the earliest departments to offer the ePay services were Dubai Municipality, Department of Health and Medical Services (DOHMS), Electronic Total Quality Management College (eTQM) and Dubai Development Board. “ePay has been well received by members of the public. Dubai Municipality and DOHMS have reported that the number of customers using ePay for payment has seen a steady increase in recent months,” says Salem Al Shair, Director, eServices, Dubai eGovernment. “We are delighted to offer ePay as a free service to online users and we expect more people to take advantage of this user-friendly facility,” he adds.
