His Excellency Minister of Environment, Water, and Agriculture Launces the "Fitry" Online Platform
​​​​​His Excellency Eng. Abdul Rahman bin Abdul Mohsen Al-Fadhli, Minister of Environment, Water and Agriculture, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the National Center for Wildlife, inaugurated the "Fitry" electronic platform within an ambitious plan to develop the center's work process and raise the level of service provided to issue licenses for import, export, hunting and other activities related to wildlife and its products, which fall under the environmental law and its executive regulations and international agreements such as the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS)) that the center applies. The "Fitry" platform contains many electronic services concerning the issuance of licenses or inquiring about the requests or violations related to such activities, and the platform aims to convert some types of licenses from paper licenses to electronic ones.
The platform aims to provide the service to the individual sector, the business sector, as well as the governmental sector, as nine services will be launched in the first phase, including the service of issuing licenses for wildlife and its products. It consists of six services for issuing import licenses, issuing export licenses, issuing re-export licenses, issuing entry permits from the sea, issuing falcon passports, issuing ownership certificates for wildlife and its products. The Inquiry Service consists of three services to inquire about requests and inquire about issued licenses in addition to inquiring about violations.
On the sidelines of the launch ceremony, His Excellency the Minister handed over the first falcon passport issued from the center through the platform to a falcon owner, as these passports are one of the means that contribute to facilitating the movement of falcons with their owners across international borders in accordance with the applicable international procedures.
On this occasion, the CEO of the National Center for Wildlife, Dr. Muhammad Ali Qurban, explained that the launch of the platform comes with the aim of facilitating procedures for citizens and beneficiaries and raising the level of performance. The platform is linked electronically with the platforms of all relevant authorities supporting the center in organizing these activities such as the Ministry of Interior And the General Authority of Customs, the Livestock Agency at the Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture, the Ministry of Trade, the Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs and other supporting agencies, to facilitate service provision operations. The platform will also contribute to supporting the inspectors in monitoring and controlling violations and documenting them electronically. His Excellency added that the center seeks, God willing, to launch up to 30 services in the near future.​
