Dubai to extend 24-hour stay-home order for another week

The system that requires residents to apply for a police permit to leave home for essential shopping will remain in effect.

Dubai Police tightened the system to ensure residents leave home less and only for essentials and will share pictures of 'reckless' violators breaching stay-home laws.

🛂 Dubai Police announces updates to Movement Permit System


The permit for this will be issued only once every 5 days and for no more than one hour. During this time, the applicant should not leave their area of residence.


The category is no longer available. However, permits for medical visits can be obtained by applying under the medical emergency category.


A permit for this category will be issued only once every 3 days. Additional requests during this three-day period will be rejected.

Dubai Police has also confirmed that the permit system will automatically adjust time slots to prevent crowding. Before every journey outside, please fill up the application required by UAE Government.
