Authorities in the UAE have now required all citizens and residents to secure a permit if they are to travel outside the country. 

The country is still not permitting residents to travel for leisure and tourism at this stage but only those who fall to certain categories such as for medical treatments, studies, business trips, diplomatic missions, humanitarian reasons and those who want to return to their home countries. 

According to a Gulf News report, residents who fall in the mentioned categories are required to provide supporting documents as well as a payment of AED50 for the permit. 

The application shall be applied through the Federal Identity and Citizenship Authority website before departure.
