Covid-19: Dubai 'move permit' for general public, not exempted employees
Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management issues instructions on Sunday.
Dubai began a two-week, 24-hour sterilization campaign on Saturday evening. During this period, the authorities will enforce strict restrictions on residents' movement, with legal action being taken against violators.
A statement issued by The Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management today said that members of the general public seeking permission to leave their homes for essential purposes during the period of expanded sterilisation operations should register themselves first on the website https://dxbpermit.gov.ae/home.
Who needs the permit?
People are to remain home unless it is to buy essentials or medicines, Covid-19 testing or for their job in a vital sector.
The Committee also announced it has launched a 24x7 hotline number 800 737648 to answer all queries related to the round-the-clock sterilisation programme and the restrictions on the movement of people and vehicles.
The hotline will provide a reliable official source for accurate, trustworthy and up-to-date information on these recent measures. The service will provide information on topics such as the process for obtaining permits, sectors exempted from the restrictions and general information on the measures.
Registering and obtaining permission through the website is mandatory for members of the public to make trips for essential purposes.
Employees working in exempted vital sectors are not required to register on the website but should obtain a letter from their employer stating the purpose of their commute.
Such employees should be able to present the letter for verification when required. The letter can also be used to waive radar violations during the sterilisation period.
The intensified restrictions, which came into effect on April 4 at 8.00pm, will continue for two weeks, subject to renewal.
However,with regard to the exempt sectors and their employees,registration is not required,but they must obtain a letter from the employer stating their movement to&from work.The paper has to be presented if stopped by authorities. It can also be used to waive violations by radar pic.twitter.com/dNhkfM61MX- Dubai Media Office (@DXBMediaOffice) April 5, 2020
