    (ANSAmed) - NAPLES, DECEMBER 27 - Dubai has opened a website which operators can use for tourist visas as the emirate is vying to become a destination for timeshare property owners, encouraging tourists to stay longer and attract investments in the sector.

    The new site, The National reported, has been developed by Dubai's Department of Economy and Tourism and allows new operators in the sector to send their applications for properties to rent, receiving a tourist visa from an authorized operator, which can be renewed each year. The website will help "pave the way for a property in the world of holidays in Dubai, also giving alternatives to tourists, encouraging them to spend longer holidays", explained Helal Al Marri, director general of the Department of Economy and Tourism. "We are firmly dedicated to implementing stronger measures and organizing the country with new rules that will allow us to remain competitive as a hub for tourists and investors in the sector".

    The emirate of Dubai is working to make the cities more competitive and allow owners to use a house or villa for someone else's holiday during certain periods of the year. Before Covid-19, the local tourism industry had registered a strong increase and further growth is expected in the future.
