All co-occupants staying in Dubai’s residential units for a month or more must register under a new rule.

In a statement sent to ARN News, the Dubai Land Department revealed more details after announcing the need to register names of all co-occupants of residential units in the emirate “within two weeks”.

The registration should include the co-occupant’s name, Emirates ID number or passport number (in case co-occupant does not have an Emirates ID).

The registration can be used as a “document of residence” for co-occupants, but it cannot be used in place of a tenancy contract for government transactions.

“While registration of co-occupants is mandatory, the tenancy contract does not need to mention all their names,” the DLD added.

The move is part of developing a “comprehensive statistical record of all residents in Dubai properties to support government entities in responding to the evolving needs of citizens, residents and visitors”.
