Emiratis can park their cars for free in Dubai.
Emiratis can now park for free close to their houses thanks to a new service offered by Dubai's Road and Transport Authority (RTA). This programme applies to all paid public parking places within 500 metres of a citizen's home.
Citizens can register for this service online through the RTA website by submitting copies of a few required documents, which include a passport or Emirates ID, proof of vehicle ownership, such as the Mulkiya in the name of the house owner, tenant, or first-degree relative, and proof of house ownership, such as a Title Deed or a valid Ejari-approved tenancy agreement.
The amount of complimentary parking spaces awarded varies according to the size of the home. For instance, residents of studio or one-room apartments are eligible for two permits, whereas those in two-room and hall apartments are eligible for three permits. Similar to this, homes with three rooms and a hall are given four licences.
