The policy comes into effect on 1 September.
We’ve got some exciting news that’s bound to put a smile on your face. The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT – Abu Dhabi) has just announced that it’s slashing its government fee on hotels. It’s time to save some bucks while enjoying the luxurious hospitality that the capital is known for. This new policy goes into effect from Friday, 1 September.
First things first, that pesky tourism fee that used to hover around six per cent is now dropping to four per cent. And if you enjoy a good meal at hotel restaurants, here’s another reason to celebrate. The six per cent tourism fee and four per cent municipality fee that used to tag along with your dining experience have now been removed too.

Remember the AED15 per room per night municipality fee? Well, it’s bidding us adieu, too. However, the four per cent municipality fee based on the invoice value will remain in the picture.
The move to revise prices comes straight from the Abu Dhabi Executive Council. With the aim to lure more tourists and entice the residents to indulge in the emirate’s hospitality offerings, these changes are a game-changer.
Abu Dhabi is welcoming you with open arms. So fellow wanderers, get ready to pack your bags and set your sights on the capital.
