Bad news for UAE Skype users. UAE government has banned Skype usage in the UAE.According to UAE media government has banned Skype's usage on mobile, tablets and laptops. On the other hand skype has mentioned this ban on their website.It has been brought to our attention that our website and services have been blocked by the ISPs in the United Arab Emirates and Qatar. That means you won't be able to use Skype in the United Arab Emirates or Qatar.Unfortunately, there is very little Skype can do about this situation. The best course of action would be for you to speak to your ISP and ask why they are blocking Skype and request that they unblock our site and services. Let's hope that this ban is temporary and soon this ban would be lifted.
