Report lost items in Dubai

If you have lost important documents or valuables, or your car/valuables have been stolen, you must notify the police in person, who will try to recover it within 48 hours, failing which they will issue you a formal report, so that you can apply for a replacement document or forward to your insurance company for a claim on your valuables.

Personal belongings include National Identity Certificate, Identity Card, Health Card, large items of cash, non-UAE Identity Card, and important documents for UAE and non-UAE companies should be reported to the police immediately.

Dubai.ae tip: If you are a visitor and you have lost something, just go to the nearest police station. Depending on the item, they will either re-direct you to the police headquarters or investigate directly from their police station. It is important that you notify the police, so that the details of your documents can be entered into official databases to prevent misuse and further loss, if any.
