eFaas and eGov Business Portal

Nobody told me about eFaas and eGov and I found it on my own through Google® search...I wanted to register my own business as a sole proprietorship, one of those things I had planed to accomplish in last month of October 2018 but couldn't do because I and all my friends were financially broke...

So since this month of November, I stopped going to coffees and limited the money I spend on cigarettes and collected small bits of cash which my friends give me for coffee money and deposited those bits of cash to my BML bank account...I also convinced my mother to give me some money and she agreed...

On Republic Day 11 November 2018, last Saturday, I searched the internet using Google® for how to register a business name in Maldives online and came across the newly released eFaas website ( https://citizen.egov.mv/eadmin ) and immediately I registered and opened an account and successfully verified and activated my account using email and mobile phone...

I than reserved a business name under my first name "Naheez" in eGov Business Portal ( https://business.egov.mv ) and yesterday I received an SMS telling me that my reserved name has been approved...

I than downloaded the Business Registration Form from the website of Ministry of Economic Development which was in .PDF format and edited it and uploaded to the eGov Business Portal...My first attempts was answered incomplete so today I took a photocopy of the form and signed it with my signature than made a scan of it and after optimizing the scanned PDF form, I again uploaded to the eGov Business Portal...

After sometime this morning, I received an SMS from eGov telling me that my application was in Pending Approval and than I received another SMS telling me that my application has been approved and that I need to pay the 500/- MVR registration fee for the sole proprietorship which is in my first name "Naheez"... I went to the Economic Ministry and paid the fee and was given the complete set of certificates and receipts of my first every business registration...
