On Friday, 26th of January, 2018, the Information Technology Industry Development Agency (“ITIDA”) declared the commencement of the activation process of the Electronic Signature services at GAFI, as well as solving all pending issues regarding ITIDA licensed companies.

Moreover, the Ministry of Investment and Internal Cooperation has declared the Electronic Signature system, once activated, as a method for registering new companies at GAFI, will be one of the procedures which shall contribute in facilitating the company’s registration process on one hand, and simplify the reinforcement of the Investment Law and its executive regulation on the other. Once activate, it is expected that the system ease and expedite all procedures with regard to incorporating new companies, as well as help reduce fraud.
