Staying with male friend


I was wondering if any of you who have been to Dubai may be able to help me.

I am a 21yr old female and have a (strictly platonic male) friend who is living out there at the moment for work.

Would it be a problem for me to stay with him in his flat as we are not married or family?

I would love to go, and it seems like to good an opportunity to miss, but also like a rather scary place to get arrested!!

Thank you!

No, no problem at all. And your friend should have told you this as well.

Also, you do not get arrested in Dubai for nothing. Whatever you might have read.

You actually need to do two things to get arrested: firstly break the law and secondly more or less force the Police to act upon this.

Many couples who are not married live together in Dubai (I understand that you are not a couple) and do so without any problems. If you friend lives in Dubai he should be able to confirm that it will be OK.
