Register with DEWA in Dubai

If you’re a resident of Dubai then you’re probably familiar with DEWA (Dubai Electricity And Water Authority), especially if you’re the registered tenant of an apartment or villa. Registration with DEWA can be easily done online on their official website using the tenant status.

The water and electricity bills in the emirate of Dubai get calculated every month by a meter system similar to how it would be calculated in the United States or Canada. Once a month when the meter is calculated, you must pay your bill, which can be easily done online using E-services at the DEWA website, or in person.

A recent milestone in terms of working with other departments and financial institutions to help serve you better has been reached by DEWA. You can now directly pay your bill through your bank account if you are a customer of Standard Chartered, Sharjah Islamic Bank, First Gulf Bank, Commercial Bank of Dubai, Ajman Bank, Emirates Islamic Bank and Emirates NBD. DEWA is always trying to expand its services to bring you more convenient ways to inquire about and pay your bills. You can also inquire about your bill using SMS services, by texting 4488 at a cost of 60 fills.
