The opening of the office is part of a strategy to incorporate registration and licensing services into DED’s services and to provide better services.

The new office is issuing No Objection Letters (NOC) for maritime licences, renewal of licences, change of activity, change of partners, change of owners and opening of a new branch.

The services also include modifying the position of clearing and shipping companies and responding to maritime companies’ inquiries.

Ahmed bin Lahej, Director of the Client Partnership Department at Dubai Customs, said, “Our new office at DED managed to attract nearly 30 per cent of the total customs registration and licensing services transactions and this shows the importance of this step.”

“The registration and licensing services will be incorporated into the DED’s services, in order to provide the client the ability to execute the transactions totally through DED. This step will improve the cooperation level between our two departments.”
