DUBAI: Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA), the government authority charged with regulating, coordinating and supervising all aspects of the maritime sector in Dubai, has announced the launch of its new campaign for licensing unregistered personal water craft such as jet skis in Dubai.

The campaign, which will run for two months, starting from Dec.15 until Feb.15, will focus on regulating water sports in the emirate by encouraging owners of personal watercraft who do not possess documents showing proof of ownership such as bills of purchase.

The simple registration formalities include filling up the application form, presenting identification documents such as passport or Emirates ID, and bringing the personal watercraft to DMCA’s headquarters near Rashid Port, Bur Dubai.

A special media campaign will also be launched to raise awareness among jet ski users about this new initiative.

Ali Al Daboos, executive director, operations, DMCA, pointed out that the jet ski registration campaign underlines the DMCA’s extensive efforts to enhance marine safety and regulate water sports in line with international best practices through development of regulations and legislations intended to reduce the risks to people, environment and property.

“The new campaign is a major step towards regulating jet ski usage, which is now a widely popular water sport in Dubai.

“Through this initiative, we look forward to facilitating and expediting the registration process, including the regulation and legislation service which we are always keen to develop in order to ensure the highest safety levels when it comes to marine sports in Dubai.

“We earlier introduced measures such as allocating dedicated areas for using jet skis on all beaches in Dubai, setting the maximum speed limit, and creating more awareness about various safety procedures and practices that need to be adopted when using jet skis to cut down the accident rate,” he added.
