Business Registration Process at the Regions other than Hargeisa:
Citizens resident in the other regions can still register their businesses without coming to MOTIT Headquarter in Hargeisa as this Ministry has Regional Coordination Offices based in all the major cities or the regional capitals like Borama, Berbera, Burao, Las’anod, and Erigavo.
- Submit your application enclosed with all other requirements as mentioned above to the respective Regional Coordination Offices of MOTIT;
- The Regional Coordination Office will verify completeness of your application, and if not complete will instruct you to complete all requirements;
- Payment of the respective license fee to the Regional Inland Revenue Department, the Regional Coordination Office is responsible to issue your License in collaboration with the Headquarter of MoTIT in Hargeisa;
- It will take two to three weeks time to get your license issued because all licenses for new or renew licenses are signed by MOTIT Minister or the Acting Minister Director General at the Headquarter;
NOTE: MoTIT is now working to advance the One-Stop-Shop Service and create online registration system to facilitate all interested applicants to have licenses issued with ease, and without delay of time.
