Free parking for Emiratis

The permit can be renewed yearly for another year of use.

On Twitter, the RTA announced that residents of the United Arab Emirates could apply for a free parking permit at any of Dubai's paid public parking lots within 500 metres of their home.

The number of permits granted is determined on the applicant's need for private lodgings.

One-bedroom homes with an attached hall or studio are eligible for two licences, whereas two-bedroom homes with an attached hall are eligible for three licences. Four permits can be requested by those whose dwelling has at least three bedrooms and a common hallway.

Families in the UAE who occupy a four-bedroom house or apartment can apply for five licences.

Permit holders or their relatives must be the registered owners of the vehicle.

According to RTA's website, "the permit is issued for citizens residing in residential areas surrounding the paid parking spaces."

Residents of the United Arab Emirates can apply at any of Dubai's many customer service facilities.
