Coronavirus, All you need to know about movement restrictions in the UAE

Those found out after 10pm will be stopped and asked for a valid reason as to why they are out during the hours of restricted movement.

The fine for being out after hours without a valid reason or permit is Dh3,000 across all emirates.

Police will also be looking to ensure workers buses are not moving from one emirate to another. They will also be checking for masks and overcrowding, however, if you are from the same family you are no longer restricted to carrying just three people to a car (that ruling is now only for taxis and transport), and if you are alone in the car you don’t have to wear a masks. However, if you are in the car with others - even if they are your family - you will have to wear a mask, else risk a Dh1,000 fine.

This is in line with the directive of the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP), the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA), and the Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management.
