UAE residents can travel freely between emirates

Movement is permitted between 6am and 10pm…

Since authorities eased restrictions on movement across the UAE on April 24, there have been lots of new rules to remember. Residents are now able to leave their homes freely between 6am and 10pm, but can you travel freely between emirates?

Well, the answer is, yes you can. According to The National, both Dubai Police and Abu Dhabi Police have confirmed the news. This applies to personal, work and staycation travel.

It is worth remembering that free movement of travel only applies between the hours of 6am and 10pm each day. From the hours of 10pm to 6am, Dubai’s National Sterilisation programme is going ahead and movement is not permitted.

Dubai Police are quoted as saying, “People can travel from one emirate to another but should stay indoors from 10pm until 6am during the disinfection period.”

An Abu Dhabi police official said, “Travelling between emirates is allowed. It does not matter where the person stays between 10pm and 6am as long as they are indoors.”
