Utility Bills Can Now Be Paid at Emirates Post Offices

It often takes an hour to pay your electricity and water bills in Fujairah. The queues are long and there is rampant queue jumping.

After standing in line for over an hour this week, the only good news was to pick up from the counter the advertising bill (pictured) from the Federal Electricity and Water Authority (FEWA) of the UAE.

The blurb states that FEWA has joined with Emirates Post so that FEWA bills and fines can now be paid at the 95+ Post offices across the UAE.

This is a significant improvement in service.

When will FEWA offer online payment facilities like most banks and communication companies in the UAE?
