Brig Saif Muheir Al Mazrouei, Director of the Traffic Department at Dubai Police, has confirmed that the website for the movement permits registration in Dubai has the capacity to receive 1,200 permits per minute, but sometimes, the website does not respond or load with some people due to the pressure on it by large number of users.
According to the Dubai Permit website, residents are limited to applying for a permit to go to the grocery shops or pharmacies once in three days. The journey to the ATM can only be once every five days.
Precautionary health measures will apply upon entry. Movement between Abu Dhabi’s regions (Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra) is also allowed using the permit system.
The ban covers all Abu Dhabi residents, including UAE nationals. Exemptions are available by special permit for employees in vital sectors, chronic disease patients visiting hospitals and the transportation of necessary goods.
The decision was issued by the Abu Dhabi Emergency and Crisis Committee for the COVID-19 pandemic on Sunday in collaboration with Abu Dhabi Police and Department of Health.
The ban covers movements between Abu Dhabi’s regions (Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafrah) as well as in and out of the emirate. It applies to all Abu Dhabi residents, including UAE Nationals.
The public must continue to adhere to all precautionary measures, including wearing masks and observing physical distancing inside vehicles.
