The UAE residents who want to switch their jobs must pay their traffic fines first as new smart system will not allow them to finalise the residency transfer.
Lt. Colonel Faisal Mohammed Al Shimmari, Executive Director of the Ministry of Interior’s Smart Government Programme, pointed out that residents who wish to transfer their residency must first pay their traffic fines, as the electronic or smart system will not allow them to finalise the residency transfer from one job to another until all fines have been paid.
He urged residents to utilise the various services presented by the Ministry on its website or smart application by registering in the smart and eServices using their Emirates ID, which uses a simple mechanism and complies with the data and information security standards.
In one year, beginning October 2014 till the end of September 2015, a total number of 133,973 fine payment transactions have been conducted via the Ministry of Interior’s smart app, UAE-MOI, and its website, www.moi.gov.ae.
“Customers have several channels to pay their traffic obligations without needing to visit a service center,” he said, adding that “customers are able to access their enquiries regarding traffic fines or traffic files for individuals and businesses.” More info
