Dubai Residents, You Now Have To Register All Co-Habitants In Residential Units. Take Note!

The Dubai Land Department (DLD) has published a regulation. It requires all renters and owners to register all co-habitants staying for more than a month, on an internet portal. You must complete eight steps of the registration procedure using the Dubai REST app within the next two weeks. Here’s everything you should know about registering all co-habitants in residential units. 

Rule To Register All Co-Habitants Applies To Whom? 

This regulation is subject to apartment and villa owners, renters, developers, and property management firms. If you miss the deadline, then you will be fined. 

Co-occupants may use the registration as proof of their shared habitation. But it cannot be used instead of a tenancy agreement when doing business with the government. Co-occupants must be included in the tenancy agreement, although you must not have all their names. 

The authorities are at work to create a “complete statistical record” of every person residing in the emirate. The objective is to assist government agencies in addressing the changing demands of citizens, residents, and tourists.

How To Register? 

The registration must have the following information:

  • Co-occupant’s name
  • Emirates ID number
  • Passport number (if the co-occupant does not have an Emirates ID).

Now, follow the below-mentioned steps to register all co-habitants: 

1. Download the Dubai REST App and sign in. If you are a new user, kindly register.

2. Select “Individual” as your role and use UAE PASS to log in for rapid access.

3. Use the UAE PASS Application to verify your identity.

4. You may choose the property where you are a renter from the Dashboard.

5. To continue, click Manage Co-occupants.

6. To add more occupants to the rental where you are a renter, choose “Add More.”

7. Select “Verify” after entering the co-date occupants of birth and Emirates ID.

8. Include all family members who reside at that address. Select the delete icon and submit, to get rid of a co-occupier. 


So, after this, as soon you will complete all the steps, the information about co-habitants will automatically get updated. We hope that this guide will help you to register all co-habitants. So hurry up, register fast!
