*Among new features are payment through debit cards and obtaining lost/ damaged driving licences
The General Directorate of Information Systems at the Ministry of Interior (MoI) has launched a new version for Metrash2 for phones and smart devices, the Ministry announced Tuesday.
Metrash2 is the fastest way to access MoI services from any place and at any time.
The Information Systems Department's assistant director Captain Abdulaziz al-Ruwaili said one of the most important features of the new version is that it includes many new services.
These include payment receipts for all services done through Metrash2. Users can request for a copy of the payment receipt to be sent to e-mail for each successful transaction, in addition to allowing them to pay by debit cards.
In response to requests and proposals received by the department from subscribers and users of Metrash2, the new service allows them to make payments using credit cards and for companies through debit services from their bank accounts.
This service aims to enable employers to complete all the preliminary procedures related to screening of job seekers from outside the country, such as work contract data entry services, electronic accreditation, and paying the costs of medical tests. This service is the first step to enable expatriates to perform the necessary tests at the Qatar Visa Centres abroad.
Contract services are for enterprises and companies subject to the Labour Law, while the service of reimbursement for tests outside the country applies to all categories of users of this service.
Among the new features is a glass tint installation permit service for permitted vehicles and fees payment without the need to go to the General Directorate of Traffic.
The users of Metrash2 can also request for replacing lost or damaged driving licence for light vehicles and paying the outstanding fees without going to the Traffic Department.
Metrash2 also allows issuing replacement for lost or damaged car plate numbers and paying for the service.
This service includes the possibility of choosing the workshop to produce the plate numbers while determining the shape (long or short).
In response to the requests and suggestions of Metrash2 subscribers and users, it is now possible to seek an additional copy of the certificates and reports that were previously sent using the application. The copy will be sent in PDF format to the registered e-mail within 15 days of the service.
A new service allows the authorised personnel of governmental and semi-governmental companies to review all electronic transactions which were completed through Metrash2 within 30 days.
Al Ruwaili said Metrash2 is available for use on all devices to serve citizens, residents, companies and institutions 24 hours from any place.
There are 174 services provided by MoI through the application, with the possibility of paying for these services directly without the need to visit the directorates of the MoI.
