The Tariff and Origin Department, represented by the Customs Policies and Procedures Section, has facilitated customer access to the customs policies and notices pages on the Dubai Customs website by introducing QR Code reader for both pages. This enables customers to instantly log on to the DC website and access the policies and customs notices pages in a quick and efficient manner, from the convenience and comfort of their smart devices.
The move is in line with the Dubai Government's paperless strategy that aims to eliminate the use of paper in all internal operations and customer transactions. Now customers will be able to use QR code reader to stay updated of the new customs policies and regulations as published on the official Dubai Customs website.
The QR code will be activated on DC website as well as Dubai Trade portal starting the 4th quarter of 2021. The QR code technology is environment-friendly as it allows customers to directly access the desired information without having to spend time searching online or using paper documents. This technology also features higher QR code readability on all smartphones.
