Ras Al Khaimah ruler issues new jet ski law


RAS AL KHAIMAH – A new law was issued in Ras Al Khaimah on Saturday (September 19) governing the use, rental and licensing of jet skis or water scooters.

The new law was issued by Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah.

The law applies to all jet skis and businesses engaged in water scooter rental and training in Ras Al Khaimah and its economic zones.

Under the new law, jet skis may not be used if they are not licensed by Ras Al Khaimah authorities. However, temporary permission for their use may be granted in races or events allowed by authorities.

The new law prohibits the use of jet skis under adverse weather conditions in Ras Al Khaimah, particularly when a warning has been issued by the UAE weather bureau.

The law also provides for a resolution by the Ras Al Khaimah Police Commander-in-Chief, in coordination with the relevant authorities, that will specify the maritime areas and times allowed for the use of jet skis or water scooters. ICA/Expat Media
