According to Interpol, the United Arab Emirates have a DNA database which contained 18,300 reference DNA profiles from individuals, plus 6,070 crime scene DNA profiles in 2011. No DNA database legislation had been adopted at that time.

In 2006, the United Arab Emirates announced it would build a DNA database of its entire population. The UK Forensic Science Service (FSS) originally signed contracts to develop the database, but the FSS has since closed down due to bankruptcy.In practice, the UAE appears to have abandoned the plan to put its whole population on a DNA database and has instead focused on improving the quality of DNA analysis from crime scenes.
