DUBAI — If going to a bank or logging on to the Internet to recharge your Salik accounts is a hassle, don’t worry. From now, motorists can recharge their Salik accounts through their mobile phones.
The Dubai eGovernment has launched mPay, a mobile payment service. Registration for the mPay service is free and clients just have to sign up on mPay’s web portal once.
After filling in the details in the form, an activation code will be sent to the user’s email address. The activation code will then have to be sent via SMS to 4488 using the user’s registered mobile phone number. After this process, a PIN will be sent via SMS to the user which will be used for all mPay transactions.
Initially, the mPay facility will be available only for electronic recharging of Salik accounts, while it will be expanded to include several government services in the near future.
