Moving home this summer? A new stage has been added to the process of connecting water and electricity.
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has announced that from 1st July, customers need an attested Ejari tenancy contract before they can get electricity and water supplies.
This can be done at any of the 800 real estate offices approved by Dubai Land Department.

One the plus side, it means you won’t have to visit DEWA’s offices. Instead, as soon as their Ejari is attested, customers will receive a welcome message email and text with an account number and a link to pay the security deposit.
“This saves their (customers) time and effort and achieves their happiness. This also minimises physical visits to government departments,” says Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, CEO of DEWA.
