To obtain a permit, you need to visit the official DET website, navigate to the Holiday Homes
section and register as an owner. You will need to upload a copy of your Emirates ID or passport and provide the required information. Subsequently, you will receive an email containing a link to a page where you can pay the DET application fee of AED 1,520 (USD 413). The permit must be renewed annually, which means you will not be charged the application fee again.
After doing this, within the Holiday Homes section, you can proceed to the New Holiday Homes Permit Issuance and register the property that you intend to rent out. You will be required to upload a title deed, a copy of your Emirates ID or passport, a DEWA account number, and your most recent electricity and water bill. The permit price depends on the number of bedrooms:
- Studio or one-bedroom apartment — AED 370 (USD 101)
- Two-bedroom apartment — AED 670 (USD 182)
- Three-bedroom properties are AED 970 (USD 264)
- Residences with four bedrooms or more — AED 1,270 (USD 346)
The rental permit will be approved within one business day.
