FATF Travel Rule Requirements in Dubai


In February 2022, the Government of Dubai enacted a new law, creating the Virtual Assets Regulatory Authority (VARA) to oversee virtual assets and related service providers. A year later, in 2023, VARA launched a set of regulations and 13 rulebooks, including the Compliance and Risk Management Rulebook.  The Compliance and Risk Management Rulebook provides a comprehensive regulatory framework for Dubai’s virtual assets, covering licensing, customer due diligence, risk management, and Crypto Travel Rule compliance.
