Abu Dhabi Reducing Hotel and Restaurant Fees from Sept 1

The Department of Culture and Tourism—Abu Dhabi (DCT – Abu Dhabi) announced on Friday a reduction in government fees for hotels in the emirate, aimed at boosting the hospitality and tourism sector’s growth and solidifying Abu Dhabi as a premier global leisure and tourism hub.

Effective from September 1, 2023, this change follows directives from the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, designed to encourage both tourists and residents to partake in the emirate’s hospitality offerings.

The revised fees aim to foster Abu Dhabi’s reputation as a tourism and cultural hotspot while strengthening the thriving hospitality industry.

The adjustments in government fees include decreasing the tourism fee for guests from six percent to four perc

ent, eliminating the Dh15 per room per night municipality fee, and scrapping the six percent tourism fee and four percent municipality fee applied to hotel restaurants. The four percent municipality fee based on the invoice value will remain.

DCT—Abu Dhabi consistently elevates the standards of tourism, culture, and hospitality offerings in the emirate, promoting a diverse range of experiences for various traveler preferences. Through these efforts, DCT—Abu Dhabi aims for sustainable growth and long-term success.

Recently, a strategic partnership was forged to enhance air connectivity between Abu Dhabi and Europe, aiming to position the emirate as a preferred tourist destination, targeting over 24 million visitors by the end of 2023.

The partnership between DCT Abu Dhabi and the Franco-Dutch airline group Air France-KLM will bolster global connectivity through daily flights to Paris.

Saleh Mohamed Al Geziry, Director General of Tourism at DCT—Abu Dhabi, highlighted that this partnership demonstrates DCT’s commitment to promoting and progressing Abu Dhabi’s tourism sector, elevating the emirate’s global status.

The goal is to enrich the visitor experience and position Abu Dhabi as a gateway to the East through strengthened international connections.
