The Department of Culture and Tourism in Abu Dhabi has announced a reduction in fees that will be applied to hotels in the emirate starting September 1st, 2023.

This step aims to enhance Abu Dhabi as a "leading global leisure and tourism destination," Abu Dhabi Media Office wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter. 

The directive will "allow residents to enjoy the hospitality offerings in the emirates," it added.

The changes in fees include a reduction in tourism fee issued to guests from six percent to four percent. Guests will no longer have to pay the municipality fee of AED 15 per room per night

The municipality fee of six percent, and the four percent municipality fee which is applied to the hotels' restaurants will also be removed.

However, the media office added that the municipality fee for four percent of the value of the invoice issued to the customer will continue.
