Stricter rules on movements

There have been changes made to movement permits in Dubai as part of further measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

It has been announced by Dubai Police residents will only be able to apply for a movement permit for essential grocery and pharmacy shopping once every three days.

This latest decision comes two weeks after it was announced the national disinfection programme implemented in Dubai for 24 hours a day requiring all residents to stay home, unless in vital sector jobs. For those wanting a leave, a permit had to be obtained.

The latest update also states all residents can only obtain a permit to leave the house for cash withdrawals or deposits at ATMs every five days.

Permits can be applied for online, where you fill out your details, the location of where you’re going to and the date and time. Once your permit has been approved you will receive a text message.

This announcement from Dubai police comes after it was confirmed the closure of all bars, restaurants, gyms and more has been extended.
