The new rules regarding mandatory the movement permit are in and residents are reminded to stay off the streets except in case of ABSOLUTE NECESSITY (food and medicine).

If you don’t work in vital sectors, you can leave your house for the following reasons only: 1) essentials like food or medicine 2) any medical assistance 3) getting a COVID-19 test. Anything else is considered violation and you will be fined.

However, a question mark still over pet-parents; are you permitted to take your pet on a short walk? What if your pet needs the loo? A resident reached out to Dubai Police on Twitter and they responded with two tweets to clarify: Walking your animal is prohibited in all cases, animals should be allowed to relieve themselves. Dubai Police informed the resident they could get a fine of AED5,000 for walking their dog.
