From Sunday, 28th of February, 2021 the Single Window platform must be used for the submission of applications and people will no longer be entertained at the ministry and its branches. The platform covers a wide range of services from the reservation of trade names and the application for commercial registrations, trade licenses and computer cards to the renewal of all and any permits.

The announcement is in line with the aim to prevent the spread of the pandemic and the intention to simplify the processes to register and maintain a business.
