License Increase from DMCA Marine Craft

Gulf Today
DMCA marine craft, licences increase

The Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) has revealed excellent performance in 2018, posting remarkable growth in marine licensing within its territorial waters. The DMCA announced an 18 per cent increase in the application of marine driving licences as compared to 2017 and a 13 per cent increase in applications received for marine craft crew licenses, also during the same period.

The strong performance demonstrates the high confidence placed by the international community on Dubai for its safe, renewable, competitive, sustainable and attractive marine environment. The increased numbers can also be attributed to DMCA’s continuing efforts to upgrade maritime licensing services as an integrated regulatory framework to ensure the integration of maritime safety, safe navigation and operational efficiencies along the coast of the emirate.
