The Ministry of Interior has called upon the citizens and families of the United Arab Emirates to avail the electronic services available via the Ministry of Interior’s smart application, UAE-MOI. The services conveniently allow customers to complete their transactions without needing to visit the service centers, excluding special cases that require the customer to be present. The smart application is compatible with iOS, Android, Windows, and Blackberry operating systems.

“The use of the application to renew passports and to avail other services is an important step that keeps pace with the significant developments that are taking place in various fields throughout the nation,” said Major General Khalifa Hareb Al Khaili, Acting Assistant Undersecretary of the Ministry of Interior for Naturalization, Residency and Ports Affairs. “This step additionally reflects the strategy of the Ministry to transform its services by providing convenient access to the myriad of high-quality services via the website or smart phones.”

For his part, Lt. Colonel Matar Kharbash, Head of the E-services Department and Head of the team supporting smart transition at the Naturalization, Residency and Ports Sector, indicated that the passport renewal service via smart phones allows citizens to avail the service in a matter of minutes, where the Dh50 fee is paid automatically and the passports are sent to citizens wherever they are. “The application can be downloaded through the applications store depending on the type of phone,” he said.
