10 Oct 2021 OPAZ By OUR CORRESPONDENT

Muscat – The Public Authority for Special Economic Zones and Free Zones (OPAZ) has announced the launch of an electronic land selection service for investors in the Special Economic Zone at Duqm (SEZAD).

Introduction of the new service reflects OPAZ’s efforts to facilitate and expedite procedures for investors in the Special Economic Zone at Duqm, reduce the time and effort, and ensure transparency and fairness for all investors in the zone.

OPAZ is also planning to extend this service during the coming period to include other free zones, according to a press statement.

The electronic land selection service allows investors to select the plot of land directly as soon as an investor determines the type of project and the required space of the plot. Based on the application’s details, the system displays the vacant plots in the masterplan for investors via the Geographic Information System (GIS), which has become one of the modern technologies used in achieving governance of procedures.

The new service assists the investor to easily make the investment decision by selecting the appropriate location of the land while providing a spatial description that reinforces the decision.

Moreover, the e-service is distinguished by allowing investors to select the plot of land in interactive maps for more than 800 different economic activities. It also brings other features, including: The possibility of measuring the distance between the selected land and the key landmarks in SEZAD, providing accurate information about the level of land’s altitude above sea level, merging joint lands, getting full measurements of lengths and spaces, determining the geographical location coordinates, and sharing the approximate distance of the land from the nearby utilities such as electricity, water, telecommunications, and roads.

Investors can access the newly launched service through the digital portal (eoss.duqm.gov.om) from all over the world.
