Is street photography allowed in UAE?

YES

If you are following street photography rules in the UAE  and have a work permit to operate in the United Arab Emirate , there should be no issues. At times, there are areas which are in the prohibited zone. You will find signboards outlining this ban on photography in particular areas. Fortunately, I am a resident of the emirate and also have a legal company registered for photography, and you will be at ease regarding the photography permits in the city.
