Works will start in September for the new facilities at the Khatam border crossing centre between UAE and Oman. The Dh15.5mn premises are being built as per directives from Interior Minister Lt. General HH Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, within the frame work of the Ministry's policy to upgrade the border crossing centres and ease procedures in the light of the economic boom witnessed by the country.

Captain. Abdul Hakim Salem Al Tamimi at the Directorate of constructions and maintenance at the Interior ministry said that the number of business travellers and tourists crossing the border is showing a steady increase, whereas over 110,000 individuals enter or exit through the checkpoint every month.

The Khatam border crossing centre is considered one of the vital checkpoints as it connects UAE and Oman. The substantial increase in the bilateral trade and tourism has necessitated the upgrading of the border crossing centre between the two countries, Cap. Al Tamimi added. The new facilities will include shaded parking areas for light vehicles and lay-by for trucks, customs check area, immigration counters, service bay and mosque. Travellers will be able to follow-up the border-crossing procedures without alighting from their vehicles, Cap. Al Tamimi added. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
