Dubai removed the boarder with Oman a few years ago and did not require cars from Oman to have insurance for the UAE if you entered from Dubai boarder point, while all other boarder point with the UAE required insurance.
We always had some trouble if we exited using other boarder points as we were not registered in the country.
Well things have changed 2 years ago and now there is check point across the boarder and today they put up a sign that says starting June UAE insurance will be needed to get into the UAE.
I feel the Dh 20 charge, that Oman charges, will introduced in the Dubai boarder soon too.
Overheard in my house.
