Dubai: People who walk or cycling to go buy essentials in Dubai will need a permit, Al Khaleej Today has learnt.

According to a new update on the Dubai permit website, people who walk or cycle outside their homes to buy essential food or medine now need a permit as well.

Residents who wish to move during the 24-hour sterilisation programme must apply for a movement permit following Dubai’s Supreme Committee for Crisis and Disaster Management decision.

When Al Khaleej Today checked the permit website a new option appeared enabling people to tick an option for what mode of transport they will be using.

People can tick on different options like car, metro, bus, walking or cycling.

Dubai Police confirmed this when Al Khaleej Today enquired. An official said those who want to step out to buy essentials will need a permit for any mode of transport including walking or cycling.

Police advised people not to go everyday to supermarkets, pharmacies and instead buy their essentials in bulk to have enough food and medicine to last two to three days.

The official urged people to use deliveries in order to not have to register for a permit.

Dubai Police advised people to go shopping in bulk but still get a permit in case they are stopped and asked to present it by police to avoid a fine. 

“People should use cycling only as a matter of transportation to go to the supermarket or pharmacy and back and not to cycle around their homes,” the official added.
