Article 25 provides that all persons are equal before the law without discrimination between the citizens in regard to race, nationality, religious belief or social status.

Article 26 provides that personal liberty is guaranteed to all citizens.

However, despite these constitutional there have been reports that the UAE government has continued to commit serious human rights violations, including arbitrary detention, cruel and inhuman treatment of detainees, suppression of freedom of expression, and violation of the right to privacy. The United Arab Emirates continued to deprive stateless individuals of the right to nationality, impacting their access to a range of services.
