Qatar: MCIT launches E-Payment Gateway in partnership with QNB

Doha, Qatar: The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT), in collaboration with Qatar National Bank (QNB), has announced the launching initial stage of the Unified E-Payment Gateway Project.

The new gateway enables individuals and companies to pay the fees of the e-services provided by the different government entities in the country.

This announcement comes as part of the effective cooperation between the public and private sectors to promote and facilitate the shift towards electronic payment and improve user experience in interacting with the digital government services.

The Unified E-Payment Gateway will provide the current and future needs for e-payment, offering several payment options using credit cards, debit cards and prepaid cards as well as bank transfers through different payment channels, such as the internet, cell phones and points of sale (POS).

It will ensure an easy and effective payment experience to users to complete payment transaction. It will also bring many benefits to government entities, such as reducing operational expenses as a result of reducing the required resources to build, operate and support e-payment. In addition, the gateway will help government entities provide their e-services both efficiently and rapidly.

In this regard, Mashael Ali Al Hammadi, Assistant Undersecretary for Digital Government Affairs at MCIT,
