RULES FOR SAILING IN DUBAI WITH FOREIGN YACHT
A “Visiting Vessel”, i.e. any of the foreign vessels, including yachts of all types and sizes, that visit and navigate the Waters of the Emirate for the purpose of tourism, maintenance, bunkering, obtaining supplies, or participation in maritime exhibitions, may not navigate or anchor within the Waters of the Emirate without first obtaining a Navigation Permit.
“Waters of the Emirate” means waters lying between the Dubai-Sharjah border and the Dubai-Abu Dhabi border and extending to the exclusive economic zone, including the internal waters of the Emirate and all ports, marinas, canals, and waterways.
For the purpose of obtaining the Navigation Permit, which is a document issued by the Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) authorising the charter of a Visiting Vessel for tourism purposes within the Waters of the Emirate, a Visiting Vessel must comply with the several and specific requirements and procedures.
