How to pay for parking in Dubai?

One of the most comfortable and easy ways to pay for paying parking tickets in Dubai is through mParking. RTA’s mParking service (mParking) is a recent service that allows drivers to pay for their virtual parking ticket using their Etisalat and Du cell phones by sending a Text message in a pre-defined format to 7275 (PARK), removing the need to walk to the Payment Display (P/D) Machines and check for coins.


Step 1:

To pay using the Dubai Parking SMS scheme, open a new message on your phone and type the number 7275 (PARK) in the senders’ address. The official number for paying Dubai parking fees via SMS is 7275.

After that, it’s time to write the SMS in the style shown below. It is important to get this right if you want to pay for parking tickets in Dubai.

So your SMS should look something like this: A12345 317C 1

Step 2:

Simply hit the send button after you’ve finished writing your letter! You would then get a confirmation SMS indicating whether or not the transaction was successful. To complete the transaction, you must have enough talk time/SMS balance on your phone.
