Dubai, September 29, 2007
The Roads & Transport Authority (RTA) has signed an agreement with Emirates Automobile and Touring Club (EATC).
As per this agreement, assistance will be provided in issuing international driving licenses and customs documents to travellers crossing borders with their vehicles in the GCC jurisdiction.
The agreement was signed on behalf of the RTA by chairman of the board and executive director Mattar Al Tayer and Mohammed Ahmed bin Sulayem, chairman of the club of EATC in presence of CEO of Traffic & Roads Agency Maitha Mohammed bin Adai, CEO of Strategy & Corporate Governance Abdul Mohsin Ibrahim, director of Licensing Department Ali Mohammed Al Jasim, director of marketing & corporate communications department Dr. Aysha Al Busmait, director of strategy & governance department Ahmed Bahrozyan and stakeholder relations manager Khalid Al Ramsi.
According to the agreement, RTA will issue international driving licenses and handle custom documents according to the system applicable at Emirates Automobile and Touring Club which is an affiliated member of International Automobile Federation (FIA) and International Association of Tour (AIT).
Following this agreement, travellers holding official travelling tickets issued from UAE Automobile and Touring Club will find it easier to cross borders to countries neighbouring the GCC.
The agreement aims at averting difficulties road travellers may face at border crossing points. It will also strengthen travelling and tourist links between the UAE and countries neighbouring the GCC like Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and Egypt.- TradeArabia News Service
