Holiday home operators in Abu Dhabi given August 1 deadline to apply for license

Holiday home operators in Abu Dhabi have been given a final deadline of August 1 to register their property and obtain a license.

The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) issued the reminder to holiday home operators in the UAE capital.

“In line with international best practices, we are reminding holiday home operators that the deadline to obtain their licence and lawfully take part in the temporary home letting business is August 1,” said Hamad Mohammed Saeed Alsudain, Licensing and Regulatory Compliance Director at DCT Abu Dhabi.

“Our aim is for residents and visitors alike to feel comfortable and safe at holiday homes across the emirate, making Abu Dhabi an even more attractive destination for business and leisure travellers,” Alsudain added.

Under the new rules, home owners who want to turn their property into a holiday home for rent should apply for a license from the DCT Abu Dhabi. The new rule came into effect last year.

The regulations ensure that private accommodation operators maintain a standard of excellence while providing a wide variety of safe and secure options.

The system also serves to support the increased demand for alternatives to established hotels and hotel apartments. With this, DCT Abu Dhabi is safeguarding high-quality holiday homes by supporting residential communities. ICA/Expat Media
