The Government Portal is a one-stop-shop providing comprehensive information and delivering integrated e-services round-the-clock. www.govmu.org is the main point of entry for Citizens, Non-Citizen & Businesses to access and interact with Government online services.
As at date the current platform hosts over 350 websites for Ministries/departments, schools, embassies abroad and para-statal bodies. In addition, around 130 eServices are online for the public to interact with different departments in Government. With the rapid pace in portal and web technology, the Government of Mauritius has taken a strategic decision to enhance the current portal technology for one that leverages on the latest web technology to benefit from various networked applications utilizing technologies such as social networking, user tagging, social bookmarks and content and service rating amongst others. Such technologies have been designed to reach and attract a greater user audience, thereby aiming at increasing the efficiency of e-government applications
All online transactions are encrypted and secured. In order to make use of the eServices, applicants need to register online.
The eServices provide the necessary line of sight and linkage to ensure the efficient and effective application of ICT and e-Government. The eServices also contributes to the vision of the Government of Mauritius through an effective delivery of public services through the deployment of e-Government and ICT. Moreover, to strengthen ICT as a strong pillar of the economy, the strategy of putting a number of eServices online through the Government Portal supports business development and is an important step in the ultimate goal to provide a hassle-free, easily accessible single point of contact for all information and services required by both potential and existing members of Mauritius business community.
E-Payment enable citizens to pay online for services requested using their credit card.
A help desk has been set up at the Government Online Centre that provide assistance to citizens as well as Ministries regarding facilities hosted on the government portal including e- services.
