In Emergency
The emergency phone number for Abu Dhabi Police is 999. Whether you need police assistance, an ambulance or for any other emergency situation, this is the number to call. Calls to this number are free of charge.

When calling the emergency number, please remember to state your name, the nature of the accident, address of the emergency and how serious the situation is.

If you are involved in a traffic accident, it’s important to contact the police immediately. In case of a minor incident, move your car to the side of the road, as there are fines for obstructing traffic. You cannot file an insurance claim without a police report.

As per UAE federal law and Abu Dhabi Government law, all visitors to the UAE must have medical insurance cover.  In case of emergency, treatment to stabilise the case is free.  Other treatment must be covered by a cash payment or insurance card for covered individuals.
