Dubai govt provides 88 services on Dubai Now app

DUBAI, October 22, 2019

A total of 88 Dubai Government services are now being provided through a single digital application Dubai Now, enabling citizens and residents to transact over Dh4 billion ($1.08 billion) on the application so far, a media report said.

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, has hailed the success of the Dubai Paperless Strategy as a key accomplishment for the city of Dubai, reported Emirates news agency Wam.

Sheikh Hamdan said: "I have overseen the progress of the Dubai Paperless Strategy over the past two years, and have now directed all government entities to work with Smart Dubai and ensure all services are delivered via Dubai Now, gradually eliminating all individual entity applications."

The Dubai Paperless Strategy was launched by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed in February 2018 to digitise all internal and external Government to consumer transactions, ensuring all transactions are 100 percent paperless.

“The inter-government cooperation between Smart Dubai and 15 partnering entities to provide government services digitally is a testament to Dubai’s firm belief in what a city can achieve in less than two years with strong collaborations,” Sheikh Hamdan added.

Dr Aisha bint Butti bin Bishr, director-general of Smart Dubai, said: "Where leaders across the globe are still unsure about how to make their cities fully paperless, we in Dubai have achieved great results thanks to the vision of our leadership and support of our government partners. We hope our achievements will act as a benchmark for all other cities wishing to implement their respective paperless strategies.”

So far, the 15 entities that have made significant progress in their digital transformation as part of the Dubai Paperless Strategy are the Dubai Land Department, the Roads and Transport Authority, the Knowledge and Human Resources Authority, the Dubai Airports, the Dubai Police, the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, the Department of Economic Development, the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing, Dubai Courts, the Dubai Municipality, the Dubai Public Prosecution, the Dubai Health Authority, the Community Development Authority, the Federal Authority for Identity & Citizenship – Dubai, and Dubai Customs.
