The National: Nearly two thousand people granted social media influencer licences in UAE. “More than a thousand people have been granted licences to operate as social media influencers in the UAE since new laws regulating the industry were brought into force last year. Influencers must apply for a trade licence and an e-media licence at a cost of Dh15,000 to post content promoting brands on social media, under rules introduced by the National Media Council in March last year.”
