Report a lost property in Dubai and get rewarded

If you have found a valuable property/item, you are entitled to claim 10 percent of the value, with an upper limit of AED 50,000; provided you hand over the property, or report it to the police within 48 hours. The reward is payable whether the original owner claims the property or not. If it is not claimed within one year by the original owner, the finder can apply to claim the property for himself/herself.  This is as per Law number 5 of 2015 on lost and abandoned property, issued by HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, in his capacity as Ruler of Dubai.

Article number 2 of the law defines lost property as monies and property that are acquired by law, has a value, lost by its lawful owner unintentionally and found within the emirate of Dubai. Abandoned property is the monies and property that are acquired by law after their owner deliberately abandons them.
For other lost items such as passports, national identity documents, licenses etc, please see this How-To
