Maritime vessel registration office doha port

The Ministry of Transport (MOT) today opened a new maritime vessels registration office at Doha Port where beneficiaries can register a maritime vessel, renew an existing registration, transfer the ownership of a maritime vessel, and obtain all types of certificates for small vessels.

MOT is inaugurating this office within the framework of its plans to improve maritime transportation services to the public by expanding maritime vessel registration offices to make the services available and easy to access, said Asst. Undersecretary, Maritime Transport Affairs, Dr. Saleh bin Fetais Al-Marri.

This office, he added, will also help with integrating the services at Doha Port, which is Qatar’s maritime tourism destination and one of its top tourism landmarks.

Al-Marri said MOT would continue its efforts to offer services to the public in the best possible way. Currently, he noted, the Ministry offers some 28 e-services for small and large vessels and work is underway to develop and automize all services for maritime vessels, large vessels and maritime certificates and licensees, in addition to developing an electronic application for all maritime services and transactions for the public, shipowners and maritime companies, and opening a maritime vessels registration office in Al Wakra.

MOT has maritime vessel registration offices in Al Khor and Al Ruwais, in addition to the main office at the Ministry’s headquarters.
