A way to convince users to adjust to online services.

Government services usually mean getting a ticket and waiting for your number to be called – but that could change in just a few years especially if you’re a Dubai resident. In line with making Dubai as one of the smartest cities in the world, it is slowly moving all of its services online that can be easily accessible through a computer or a mobile app.

Government services usually mean getting a ticket and waiting for your number to be called – but that could change in just a few years especially if you’re a Dubai resident. In line with making Dubai as one of the smartest cities in the world, it is slowly moving all of its services online that can be easily accessible through a computer or a mobile app.

To help convince users, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai has announced October 26th to be called ‘A Day without Service Centres’. This means that all government offices will be closed on that day and all transactions and services will only be available online.

Online transactions are easier since you never have to go to a government office and you can do it in the comfort of your own home. The Dubai Government also has a plethora of apps available for iOS and Android users that you can use without the need of a computer.

Customer service centers will still be open to take calls, and will be happy to educate costumers about the various online services available.
