Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing has announced updates to the Desert Tour & Camp regulations first introduced in May 2016. These updates are for further enhancing the Emirate’s popular desert experiences, increasing its standards and uplifting Dubai’s image as an adventure hub with distinct and diverse offerings. Dubai Tourism has created a more manageable and unified set of rules for desert tour and camp operators to follow, which will ultimately simplify and streamline compliance across the sector.
To quote Dubai Tourism Executive Director of Tourism Activities and Classification Sector Khalid Bin Touq, “In order to further improve standards across the many desert experiences and desert-based activities available in Dubai, all of which remain integral to our tourism agenda, we are committed to helping tour operators by providing an easier and more transparent list of regulations. This is a result of our open dialogue with key industry and government partners, and we are grateful for their continued support as we collectively work towards our shared goal of evolving our targets and services to establish sector-wide best practices, which benefit both operators and tourists.” The updated rules will be rolled out to desert camp and tour operators for ensuring smooth and trouble-free operations.
