Question: As an expat how do the police in Dubai verify whether you are married or not? Do they request a marriage certificate or do they contact the foreign consulate or the foreign country directly? or do they take your word for it?

Thanks

The best bet is not to get involved with the police!!! But if you are indeed married, then you should keep your marriage certificate with you from your home of record. If you have lost it, then I would suggest acquiring a registered copy of it.

Are you needing this for a visa application?

Other way round, I am not married and share a flat with a girl.

I want to be prepared if I am pulled over by the police with a gril in my car.

It isn't illegal to share a car with an unmarried girl. That's Saudi Arabia you're thinking of.

This may seem silly question, but when people are applying for visas, dont they have to put what address you are going to be living at??? And then they dont just keep that on record and know who is living with who? Or its not that high speed?

No its not that high tech. I lived in a hotel for 6 weeks then moved to an apartment without any need to have my residency adjusted

Its fine to be with a female in the car ... no probs !!
you can have a girlfriend ... your just not allowed to live together or have sex or sleep together until u are married .. no intimacy ... !!
They dont go around checking if people are married because their together .. its just a case of IF there was a problem .. like say u had a row or something & the police were called .. then they would definately question you about this ..:cool:
