MOTC Launches National Authentication System “Tawtheeq”

The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MOTC) has launched the National Authentication System Tawtheeq that targets the management and governance of the digital identity of individuals and businesses that use websites and online applications to access government e-services. The new System provides multiple methods for unified access to these e-services smoothly, safely and quickly.

The new System offers numerous advantages to both digital service providers and users. These include user online-registration, user verification, unified access using the same username and password to all government e-services and multilayered verification.

HE Minister of Transport and Communications Jassim Saif Ahmed Al Sulaiti said: We are glad to launch this National Authentication System that will offer faster user access to all government services and boost user information security in line with the Qatar Digital Government 2020 Strategy, which, as its first strategic objective, aims to better serve individuals and business by emphasizing the customer focus through serving the people who live and work in Qatar, and businesses that fuel the nation’s economic growth.

Al Sulaiti added that several government entities are keeping up with latest technologies and updating their digital services, which makes it so important to enhance the electronic authentication and verification tools, and that with the new System, all users would be able to access government e-services using the same username and password, thus saving time and effort and delivering the services faster.
