Qatar launches new ‘Camel Ownership Transfer’ service
The e-chips are used as ownership registration documents and includes the colour, age, and surname of the camel.
Camel owners with officially registered ‘camel chips’ can now transfer ownership in minutes through Qatar’s Ministry of Municipality’s newly launched online service.
The latest technological addition aims to allow the circulation of camel ships to users with ease and avoid any grazing violations that may result from un-updated trade transactions, authorities stated.
It is now available through the ministry’s website “Aoun” in a mobile application. It’s hoped the it will make camel trade much easier and faster for owners around the country.
Instead of visiting a government facility to change the camel’s chip number after the sale, traders can now transfer the chip number to one another through a click of a button.
