How Many Years Required for
Dubai Municipality Approval?

The Dubai Municipality has various approvals you may need if you're planning on opening a new business or starting a restaurant. Whether you need a construction permit or a food license, the application process varies depending on what you plan to sell. 

To learn more, visit the Department of Economic Development in Dubai. This website can help you navigate the approval process. To apply for DM approval, fill out the form on the municipality's website.

The first step in the process of applying for DM approval is to complete an application form. You can download this form from the municipality's website or get one from your engineering firm. Remember to submit all the required documentation with the application. The Dubai Municipality will review the form and issue a permit to proceed with the project. Make sure to follow up regularly to ensure your approval. You may have to wait a few months or longer, so you should start early.

After obtaining your municipality's approval, you will need to pay the fees.

In addition to obtaining a No Objection Certificate, the municipality approval in Dubai requires you to apply for it before starting any construction work on designated agricultural or cultivated spaces. They grant this certification to ensure the conservation of these green areas. The same goes for any other use, including increasing electricity current, requesting additional water and electricity meters, or undertaking maintenance on a building. Below are some examples of the applications that require a No Objection Certificate.

You must first register your product with the Dubai Municipality to get the DM approval. You can do this by visiting their dedicated online portal, called montage. The process is straightforward. Companies registered in the UAE with a valid trade license can apply for product registration. The process takes just a few weeks, and you will receive your Dm approval certificate. Afterward, you must submit a final product copy for testing and evaluation.
