The Ministry of Interior added two new E-services to its website and to its mobile app Metrash 2, to make its electronic services easily accessible to the public.

The new service facilitates automatic renewal of residence permits in addition to the facility to subscribe for direct debit service through the Metrash 2 account.

The new automated residence permit renewal will help save time and effort of company representatives and avoid fines for delays in renewal. To avail of the automated residence permit renewal, companies had to be added to the new service and individuals will be notified by the system automatically. This service also facilitates removal or exemption of individuals who leave their company regardless of reason.

Companies should subscribe to direct debit service to allow transfer of service fees directly from the beneficiary company’s account to the account of the Ministry. Metrash 2 subscribers or MOI website clients can use the new direct debit service to make payments for the required services. This was possible earlier through bank cards only.

To activate, fill the special forms available at any branch of Qatar National Bank and identify the individuals granted the authority to access direct debit service. The authorised individuals can use it for any payment, even if the amount is higher. In case any error to the amount is deducted from the account, the amount will be returned to the account without delay.

The General Directorate of Information Systems at the Ministry of Interior urged all companies and establishments to register for the automatic residence permit renewal to save time and effort, and avoid fines for delay in renewal.

Almost 211 electronic services are available through Metrash 2 and the MOI website. The number of subscribers to Metrash 2 has now reached 328,000.
