New Dubai holiday home plan set to improve renting experience

A QR code system is being implemented to streamline the process

Those with government-approved holiday homes in Dubai will now have to put a QR code on the front of their property.

The Department of Economy and Tourism (DET) announced the new QR code scheme on Monday in the hopes of improving the experience for renters and visitors.

New QR codes on the doors will reveal information about the holiday home operator and contact details at the DET to those who scan. It will also streamline the inspection process

In 2016, the DET invited private homeowners to apply for holiday home permits for their properties. The government-approved holiday homes scheme means you can rent out your property to tourists visiting Dubai.

Once you submit your paperwork, the property is inspected by the government. The homeowner is then given a holiday home permit, while the home is classified into ‘standard’ or ‘deluxe’.

Adding a layer of security, the Department will also manage complaints and disputes with the visitors staying in your property or the homeowner.

The DET report that the holiday homes scheme has seen huge growth this year.
