Discord is still banned in the UAE:

Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) in the UAE restricted Discord and Team-talk, two famous online correspondence administrations for gamers, as a feature of its system to deny VOIP benefits in the locale. Presently, trying to restrict the choice, an appeal to have been made on Change.org asking for the TRA to lift the boycott and enable access to the applications. Applications like Discord had turned into a vital piece of web-based gaming in the locale, as it not just helped gamers to compose online matches with different players, yet in addition keep in contact companions over the UAE and abroad. The part of the boycott is its general impact on the Esports scene in the locale, which is simply developing in fame. With no entrance to Discord and Team-talk, it turns out to be progressively difficult for groups to arrange and rehearse for competitions, and in addition discuss adequately amid matches.

At the present time, the best way to get to these applications is to utilize VPN, which is considered illegal in the UAE. There is no certification if the request of will get the TRA to upset their choice, however, hope that it at any rate stands out enough to be noticed. Presently the ISP that does that (Etisalat) has had a history with VoIPs. They closed off Skype a couple of years prior in light of the fact that it was "unapproved" to work in the UAE without a legitimate permit, and Skype was unblocked after it got the permit from the UAE government.

They utilized a similar explanation behind closing off Discord that the VoIP benefit they are furnishing don't concur with UAE law and are so closed off. A discord agent said that they are attempting to work it out yet so far no new data has turned out yet. There is one more ISP that works inside UAE called DU which has not connected these bans YET, but rather they more often than not stick to this same pattern.
