Dubai Police has set up a team across Dubai to check residents, including motorists, if they have actually obtained a movement permit online via www.dxbpermit.gov.ae/home.
Police force has been scattered in Dubai; in Jumeirah, on E11 and Al Safa Road. This is to ensure that the people outside their homes took prior permit.
The permit was launched this week as part of Dubai’s initiative to curtail the spread of coronavirus.

In a tweet by Omar Kassim (@okassim), he shows photos of the Dubai Police checking in on motorists and residents.
In an earlier news, a top police officer in Dubai has also warned those residents who misuse the permit.
Non-emergency reasons or even stepping out of homes without movement permit is a crime and subject to deportation.
