Dubai government services waived


DUBAI – Fees for various government services in Dubai will be waived following a recent decision by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council.

The fees that will be waived include entry fees to public libraries and fees for medical training activities, schools awareness campaigns, among others.

The decision is aimed at lowering the cost of living, while facilitating the ease of doing business and supporting investors.

“We need to periodically review the existing legislation and policies to keep pace with the changes and maintain the sustainability of our development journey,” Sheikh Hamdan said.

The crown prince said it is part of the government’s role to “promote Dubai to the rank of the most advanced and happiest cities in the world”.

Scrapping fees for various government services is part of plans to promote Dubai’s competitiveness, and enhance public and investor confidence in the government.

Meanwhile, 2,356 administrative fees of 22 government entities were reviewed and new rules were introduced to limit the introduction of new administrative fees to reduce the financial burden on the public and investors. ICA/Expat Media
