Man asks for permit to move between the houses of his two wives

A man who asked Dubai Police if he needs a permit to go between the houses of his two wives, was just one of the many bizarre and funny questions received during the introduction of the 24-hour sterilisation programme this week.

A senior Dubai Police official was on local radio answering queries from callers when the question cropped up.

“I’m married to two woman,” said the caller. “Should I get a permit when I move from house to house?”

Brigadier Saif Muhair Al Mazroui, director of the Traffic Department at Dubai Police laughed with the caller and said not getting the permit would be a good excuse not to see his other wife if he doesn’t want to be with her.

“I received many questions like this one,” said Al Mazroui. “The permit is only for one time and people need to apply for a permit whenever they leave their homes for necessary matters,” he added.

Al Mazroui said the permit’s aim is to protect people against coronavirus and limit its spread.


“It’s not logical to give someone a weekly permit to buy essentials as we are aiming to reduce movement on the roads,” he said.

“Areas which used to take one week to be completely sterlised, can be done within one day now, and that will speed the return to our daily lives,” he added.

Other questions ranged from when will coronavirus end and do people need a permit to walk their pets.

“Individuals are not allowed to leave the house except for essential purposes or if they are working in vital sectors during the national sterlisation programme,” Dubai Police replied on their official twitter handle.
