SUVA, June 14 (Xinhua) -- Online payment options are now available for e-services such as birth registration and registrar of companies in Fiji in another move to make the island nation a cashless society.

During the 2019/2020 National Budget announcement, Fiji's Economy Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum had revealed that from Friday the payment options will be made available to all Fijians.

Khaiyum said they want to introduce electronic payment options across all government services in the island nation.

"We want Fijians to take advantage of this transition so the government will be covering all of the associated card fees on electronic payments for government services while also undertaking a review of government fees and charges many of which have not been updated for decades."

According to Fiji Broadcasting Corporation (FBC)on Friday, digital revolution is advancing at a high pace and the Fijian government has allocated 39 million Fijian dollars (about 18 million U.S. dollars) for the DigitalFiji initiative.
