They also involve supporting the emirate’s real estate sector with 11 decisions, including cancelling administrative fines for every violation of real estate registration renewals.

Sheikh Ammar’s directive will support the tourism sector through three new decisions, which are exempting hotel and tourism establishments from registration fees until the end of the current year, cancelling penalties, and postponing the payment of fines due at the end of the current year.

To support the business sector in Ajman, Sheikh Ammar announced the postponement of the payment of the fines and penalties until the end of the current year for all businesses in the emirate.
