What are the restrictions when sending messages to the UAE?
When sending messages to international destinations text messages can be subject of local restrictions/filtering imposed both at government and local network levels. Unfortunately we cannot influence these decisions so in order to maximise the potential of a successful delivery please follow the regulations. We have listed known restrictions per country but please note that these are not exhaustive and can change as new restrictions are applied – in most cases the local networks do not make notification of changes, we will update restrictions as and when they become known to us.
Etisalat and Du – Transactional messages will be overwritten with a default short code. For marketing messages a formal request is required.
