Dealing with Legal Issues in Dubai


Dubai has developed its own indigenous legal system to deal with issues related to its own citizens and tourists. The tourists and visitors must be aware of the following that are considered as illegal when in the country.
 
1. Public display of affection such as holding hands, kissing and hugging.

2. Carrying of medicines without original containers and prescriptions from a doctor. Very essential medicines banned in UAE should be supported by proper documentations from a qualified specialist doctor or a hospital mentioning why such medicine is essential. Proper authentication from the local UAE embassy is essential in some of the cases.

3. Carrying of banned and illegal drugs even in minutest quantities knowingly or unknowingly within the country is banned. The presence of such drugs in urine or blood or even trace of such drugs in your luggage, body or dress will lead to prosecution for possessing banned drugs.

4. Though the tourists and visitors are permitted to drink alcoholic beverages at the hotel, driving after drinking or misbehaving after drinking will lead to arrest and severe punishment.

5. Taking photographs of the UAE nationals especially women without permission and taking photographs of government buildings will lead to prosecution.

6. Prostitution, adultery and Homosexual relationships are banned within the country.

7. Staying in the same room in a hotel with someone of the opposite sex who is not closely related or to whom you are not married is not permitted.

8. Wearing skimpy and revealing cloths in public places is banned.

9. Using fowl language in public is not allowed.
 
The courts in Dubai provide government appointed lawyer for those sentenced for life. Those face prison sentences from three to fifteen years may request the court to provide a lawyer if they cannot have one. Free legal representation is provided anyone charged with criminal offence.


Contacting Dubai Government Officials


The government of Dubai follows an 'open door' policy. It uses modern communication methods such as websites and email to be in touch with its people. The country allows even a common citizen of the country to reach any one from the low level government official to the king in the government system. The government call centers operate 24/7 to offer services to the customers. Help desk numbers are provided to get all the vital information.

All the nationals living in Dubai respect the Dubai police for its role model activities. The police force keeps the city free of crimes. Most of the emergency problems get redress by calling 999 and non emergency problems by calling 901. The Al Ameen 800-4888 number of Dubai Police receives calls confidentially about reports on crime and security.
