Dubai eGovernment keeps on giving
mPay brings us one step closer to never having to deal with government offices again

mPay, I salute you.
The Dubai eGovernment has launched mPay, a facility that allows you to recharge your account with your mobile phone. So far, it’ll only be used for Salik, but it’s a start. I can’t wait for DEWA and Etisalat to use the service, then I’ll give it a proper salute; anything that reduces my contact with government offices makes me a happy Dubai resident. Because taking a day off to visit a government office where everyone knows nothing but insists on being treated like royalty, and where, suddenly, a document I’ve never heard of is absolutely crucial to do anything, is not how I like to spend my hard earned vacation days.
I suspect, however, that like most new facilities introduced in Dubai, the first few weeks will be marred with all sorts of frustrating mishaps.
What do you think?
