Vehicles registered outside the UAE can now use the Road Transport Authority’s (RTA) mobile parking payment system without the first recording for the service.
It was announced earlier that all vehicles not registered in Dubai now no longer need to register for the service before using RTA’s SMS parking payment system.
These services are designed to simplify the process of paying for parking via SMS. The upgrade also includes informing customers who require assistance during public holidays that parking is free. “Said Maia Bin Adai, CEO of RTA’s Transportation and Roads Authority.
The notification system is also helpful for people in Dubai, especially those who pay without paying for free parking on Fridays and holidays.
The SMS format for cars registered outside the emirate should be as follows:
- Dubai parking SMS format for Abu Dhabi license plates: AUH13 12345 335A 1
- Dubai parking SMS format for Sharjah board: SHJ2 12345 335A 2
- Dubai parking SMS format for Saudi license plates: KSA 123ABC 335A 4
