Required documents

Before you apply for a reservation permit, make sure your requirements are ready. You need to prepare:

  • A letter from the Department of Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities (DIACA) or from the mosque owner or sponsor. The letter has to be addressed to the Parking Administration to request the reservation.
  • Mulkiya/Vehicle registration. Make sure that the vehicle is registered in your name, or one of your first or second degree relatives.

Reservation permit validity

The parking reservation permit is valid for one year, and renewable.

You can use this to reserve a parking space at a mosque, especially on busy days like Friday. You can also lend your permit to your first or second degree relatives.

Terms and conditions

You must be a Dubai resident to be able to apply. You have to remember that only one parking per imam and one parking per muezzin may be reserved.

In case of private mosques, your sponsorship should be on the mosque's sponsor or the developer that built.

It is worth nothing that the permit is not valid for other already reserved parking spaces.
