Free parking in Dubai on Fridays and no longer on Sundays

The decision was made at the behest of the Crown Prince of Dubai

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, has instructed those concerned to make periodic changes in the country’s parking laws. This is followed by action. From now on, parking in Dubai will be free on Sundays and other public holidays. The new requirement is to pay for 14-hour vehicle parking between 8am and 10pm on Mondays to Saturdays.

Continuous parking time change

At the same time, multi-level parking facilities charge a fee for parking 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The new rules also stipulate that parking on roadside areas is limited to four consecutive hours, although paid or free. Parking longer than this would be illegal. However, vehicles can be parked for a fee of up to 24 hours at non-road side parking slots. Vehicles should not be parked in the parking areas of multi-storey buildings for more than 30 days.

The order will come into effect as soon as it comes in the Gazette

The new parking rules were announced by the Director General of the Roads and Transport Authority on the instructions of the Crown Prince of Dubai. The new order will come into effect from the date of its publication in the Gazette, officials said. From January 1 this year, the holiday in the UAE was changed from Friday to Sunday. But in the case of free parking, the authorities decided to continue on Friday. But with the new decision, free parking will also be available on holiday Sundays.
