Soon I will be traveling to UAE, to be more specific, I will travel to Dubai, and I will stay there for a while. I have recently installed Kaspersky VPN secure connection and I have purchased/activated premium version. As pointed on the Kaspersky Web Page, it is impossible to download, install and use Kaspersky VPN in UAE, but I would like to know is it possible to use already installed and purchased premium version, bought and activated in Europe? Thank you very much for your assistance.

@Dragutin Welcome. Kaspersky products purchased on the Global site are not submitted to regional restrictions.

Dear Berny, does this mean that I can use Kaspersky VPN Secure Connection in Dubai?

As I am informed, some VPN applications can not be used at all in UAE, even though previously activated in the region of purchase.

It is weird that it is forbidden although Kaspersky has a UAE based server

 

I believe it is a crime if it was used for illegal actions bot watching regional contents.
