In a move that really embraces the future, UAE nationals and residents can now get their children’s birth certificate issued via WhatsApp.
The birth certificate WhatsApp news was announced by the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoAHP) at Gitex.
And it’s all part of the UAE’s aim to keep up-to-date with the latest technology and online trends.
Anything that reduces paperwork is a big winner for us.
“The new service aims to enrich customer experience and enhance communication channels with the public using a smooth and simplified methodology based on advanced systems and international best practices. It is also in line with the ministry’s plans to support the smart government objectives,” said the Ministry in a statement to the media.
Parking by WhatsApp too!
The UAE’s WhatsApp revolution doesn’t stop there!
You will soon be able to pay for parking using WhatsApp.
Parking via WhatsApp will be available within two weeks, using the same 7275 number, rather than just via SMS.
A QR code available on iPhones can also be scanned to open the area or parking zone. Drivers can then put in their registration number and pay via ApplePay.
