Home Government Licenses Licenses Types

Licenses have been defined into two types. Each type has its own procedure.

As Invest Easy system is still in the progress of building the integration with the different entities, the procedure of the second type of license has been split into two different procedures based on the classification of the business activity and the status of integration with Invest Easy system.

The simplification and re-engineering process of the licensing procedures are being improved by the time as the number of integrated entities is increasing. And as more related entities are being ready for the integration to "Invest Easy Licensing System", as more the simplification be more clear.
