Abu Dhabi waives 10% tax on event tickets until December 31

The Department of Culture and Tourism-Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) is extending a tax waiver on event tickets in the emirate until December 31.

According to DCT Abu Dhabi, no 10 percent tourism fee will be imposed on any event or concert ticket sold, issued or distributed in the emirate until December 31.

The tax waiver is expected to benefit event organizers, as well as ticket distributors and event marketing companies while also stimulating growth within the tourism sector.

“Extending the tourism fee waiver until the year-end underscores our commitment to fostering growth and providing unwavering support to our event partners and organisers, who are integral to the emirate’s tourism and entertainment landscape,” said Saleh Mohammed Al Geziry, director general of Tourism at DCT Abu Dhabi.

Al Geziry emphasized that events in Abu Dhabi serve “as a magnet for tourists worldwide” and play a big part in the emirate’s tourism industry.

Under Abu Dhabi rules, event organizers must secure event licenses through the Abu Dhabi Events Licensing System and follow prescribed regulations, including declaration of revenues and submissions of audited financial statements. ICA/Expat Media
