The National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) has lifted movement restrictions in the UAE.

As of Wednesday June 24th, the UAE Government will allow UAE residents and citizens the freedom to go out throughout the day and night, without time restrictions, which had been in place for 90 days.

They were required to stay home during the national sterilisation programme, recently between 11pm and 6am in Dubai and 10pm and 6am in all other emirates.

Restrictions on entering the emirate of Abu Dhabi are still in place.

Dr Saif Dhaheri, the spokesperson of the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority, says: "The National Disinfection Programme has completed the sterilization of all utilities nationwide, including means of public transport," he said, adding that sterilisation of public and private establishments will continue to ensure public safety.
