Ezdan said The Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy has opened submission of accommodation requests for housing units to serve FIFA World Cup 2022.
The new procedures are expected to encourage landlords and investors to participate in supporting the global sports event by renting out their properties that comply with the standards for a period extending to minimum five years, which is renewable.
This is expected to be effective in balancing the supply and demand and meet the national market needs during the World Cup.
According to the Supreme Committee, applications can be submitted and registration done through filling in an electronic form through website.
