Thank you for your question.It does not appear you can. Massachusetts will only honor valid licenses from countries identified in Appendix “C” of the current Massachusetts Driver’s Manual. You can see that list here. I do not see Dubai on that list of countries, but please double check it in case I missed it. Most of the identified countries are parties to one of the two major international road or automotive traffic conventions the U.S. recognizes. Germany and Switzerland are not parties to the 1949 Road Traffic Convention but their driver licenses are honored based on reciprocal agreements. As Dubai is not listed (unless I just overlooked it) you would not be able to drive on a foreign license while visiting. I am sorry. Your complete satisfaction is my goal. If you need additional information or clarification about my answer, please reply, and I'm happy to assist further.
