Weddings and social events permitted to resume in Ajman

Effective November 1, these events can be held in halls, hotels and private homes too


The Ajman Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Team confirmed on Sunday, November 1, that it would allow weddings and other social events to be held within the emirate, effective immediately.

These events will be permitted to be held in halls, hotels and private homes too, though with certain preconditions to ensure the health and safety of all the attendees.

At external venues such as halls and hotels, a maximum of 200 people can congregate.

In homes, however, that number is restricted to 50, said Major General Sheikh Sultan bin Abdullah Al Nuaimi, Commander-in-Chief of the Ajman Police.

At each table, a maximum of five people are allowed to be seated together. Organisers must make hand sterilisers available for guests.

Attendees must wear facemasks at all times, though they are allowed to remove it when seated at their table. They must also adhere to other guidelines including maintaining social distancing and avoiding shaking hands.
