The Ministry Housing has added yet another facility to view and accept the declarations of family members of housing beneficiaries online to complete the application process.
This service is in addition to the more than six housing services available through the e-government portal bahrain.bh. The service, Dr Khaled Al-Haidan, the Assistant Undersecretary for Housing Policies and Services, said saves the time and effort of the reviewers.
The beneficiaries of this service are housing applicants and family members, which include husband, wife and parents. Al Haidan said the ministry has also launched another service giving citizens “the right to dispose of housing services” without physical presence.
The services, amid the Covid-19 pandemic, allows the ministry to ensure social distancing and reduce crowding at its customer service centre by 75%.
“With these launches, the ministry has also completed shifting all its top services online,” said Al Haidan. He added: “The next phase will see the ministry integrating artificial intelligence in its services online.”
The other services on bahrain.bh allow applying for a new housing unit, land or apartment, making financing requests for construction, purchase or reconstruction, applying for the Mazaya programme and knowing the status of the housing request.
