Arriving by car

It is possible to drive into Dubai by car from neighbouring Oman, Qatar and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Visitors driving into Dubai require an international driving licence, the correct exit permit from country of origin, a Dubai entry permit (available at the Dubai border), an entry visa, and valid vehicle insurance.

To find out what exit permit you need when leaving your country of departure, and also how to apply for an entry visa into Dubai, you should contact the UAE Embassy in your home country.

Dubai features a network of excellent and well-maintained roads, making it an easy destination to explore by car. Cars drive on the right-hand side of the road. Traffic signs are generally always in English and Arabic.
 
Certain main roads in Dubai have toll gates so it is important to ensure that your car is fitted with the electronic Salik tag. This tag is available from most petrol stations and is affixed to your car windscreen. Once you have loaded it with credit (which can be done online or at petrol stations), you will be charged Dhs.4 each time you pass under a toll gate.
 
Check the Dubai Customs regulations to ensure you are not bringing any prohibited items with you into Dubai, as there are checkpoints at each border post. It is not permitted to transport alcohol into Dubai when arriving by road.
