The UAE's National Crisis, Emergency and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) has announced a 50 per cent discount on penalties imposed for violating COVID-19 precautionary measures.

The discount, which will start from March 15 for a two-month period, will include all unpaid violations committed during the pandemic.

The authority urged the public to pay through the official website and smart app of the Ministry of Interior, and those of the local police.

During the pandemic, the UAE had introduced a host of penalties for breaking regulations put in place to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

It was in November, 2022, that the UAE government lifted all precautionary measures related to COVID-19.
