Ras Al Khaimah: The Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (TDA) Licences Department, in accordance with the Electronic Government Authority (EGA), has launched the Electronic Tourism Licences and Permits System aimed at simplifying and facilitating registration procedures.

The move will enhance customers’ experience and improve the operational capability for running the daily licences and permits, the tourism authority said in a statement on Monday.

“The new system will allow applicants to know the initial approvals of the tourism licences and permits, inspection requests as well as updating on the status of receipts payment, the granting of licenses and permits as well as also allowing applicants the convenience of printing the documents accordingly,” the authority said in a statement.

According to Victor Louis, General Manager of Ras Al Khaimah TDA, opportunities to attract investment to Ras Al Khaimah abound with the emirate’s strategic location, free zone, as well as specialised industrial areas.

“By launching the Electronic Tourism Licenses and Permits System, we are taking a great step towards simplifying and facilitating procedures for investors who in increasing numbers are choosing to invest in this rising emirate based on solid analysis of the facts and factors that have made Ras Al Khaimah such an attractive destination for investment,” he said.
