The Information & eGovernment Authority (iGA) has launched a host of new ePayment services in cooperation with the private sector, the latest being self-payment kiosks in partnership with leading payment channel, Sadad.

This is in line with its commitment to provide a range of digital platforms and payment channels to the public, and streamline government transactions, said the statement from iGA.

One of the first services launched through this channel is the payment of the traffic contravention service, offered in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic.

Work is currently ongoing to launch more eGovernment services via the new added payment channel Sadad, in line with the objective to strengthen partnerships between the private and public sectors.

This also supports the government’s digital transformation and its transition from being an operator to becoming a regulator of services.

The iGA’s eGovernment services via its channels, including the ones offered through Sadad, adhere to the highest quality and safety standards, guaranteeing data privacy, and ensuring more streamlined and convenient transactions.

The ePayment services are experiencing user growth rates averaging at approximately 37% per year.  iGA plans to introduce further services through the Sadad network that includes more than 850 kiosks located across the kingdom
