Putting an end to all the rumors circulating the social media regarding hefty fines for the use of VPN services in UAE, the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority has given its official statement regarding the matter.
The TRA has made it clear that it has issued no such fines on the citizens. Although the authorities are cracking down use of VPN for illegal or fraudulent policies, as outlined in Federal Law No.5 issued in 2012, legal services must face no issues.
In its official statement the TRA said, “There are no legislations in the country that obstruct the economic movement or the work of local or international companies based in the UAE”.
Fines for illegal services were raised in 2016 from AED15,000 to AED500,000 to AED500,000 to AED2,000,000.
