In order to be able to input data, a user needs to be registered and the permission for doing it (needs to be) granted.
Would it sound good if I omit this second (needs to be).
How could this be elegantly solved?
Thanks

    Because you have two different things that need to be done, you should not omit the second "needs to be". If one subject needs two things, then the construction is fine: The applicants need to be licensed and registered. In your example, however, the user needs something and then permission needs to be granted, which don't match up well. You could try: "...a user needs to be registered and to have permission for doing it".
