Since Friday April 24, the UAE has eased restrictions on the movement of the public across the emirates. Dubai’s permit scheme was moved from 24 hours per day to only between the hours of 10pm and 6am each night.
The permit website now states that all permits, except those with emergency-related reasons will be rejected. Outside of these hours, residents no longer need to apply for a permit. Those working in exempted sectors do not need a permit, but should carry proof from their employer.
A Dubai Police official has confirmed that radar traffic cameras across the UAE have been reprogrammed to catch violators who are out between 10pm and 6am, according to Gulf News.
