In the UAE, government services are generally exempt from Value Added Tax (VAT). However, there are exceptions for certain services, so it's advisable to check the specific service and its VAT status to ensure compliance with tax regulations.

For availing government services in UAE, you will not be charged tax. However, some government services like the issuance of driving licences, passports, etc, may be subjected to VAT.
