Starting Dec 12, no government entity in Dubai will issue paper


Starting December 12, 2021, not a single government entity in the emirate of Dubai will issue any paper documents as it on track to become the first city in the world to go completely paperless. 

Citing a Khaleej Times report, the total eradication in paper consumption for all entities adapting the strategy was 82.82 percent, saving 269.8 million sheets of paper. Overall, the strategy has helped save AED1.13 billion, over 12.1 million hours of labor, and 32,388 trees that would have been cut down to produce paper. 

All this initiative came from the Dubai Paperless Strategy. 

“The Dubai Paperless Strategy has come a long way and is advancing rapidly towards its primary goal of digitizing all internal government operations and services offered to the public,” Younus Al Nasser, Assistant Director-General of Smart Dubai, said. 

He added that the strategy is an important breakthrough in the Dubai Government’s digital transformation and a key factor in the effort to make Dubai the smartest and the happiest city on Earth. 

“And now, the countdown has started as the Dubai government prepares to completely do away with paper across all government entities by December 12, 2021,” he further added.
