Censorship on in Dubai


I’m trying to access the national lottery of Belgium while I’m in Dubai and get attached error page.

I would assume cloudflare does not censor dns queries? But it seems it does?

I’m using dns over tls on android see below.

It doesn’t, I presume that is done on the HTTP layer via some sort of firewall country wide… Can you check what is the actual response to your query?

Thanks, didn’t think to do that, I don’t have my laptop with me and used a basic android app. But it does seem the correct IP is resolved.
When going to the IP in the browser I also get the warning page but the IP is Belgian.

Thanks for clarification. Guess I should stay on vpn.

That is the same IP I get from DoH -

  "Answer": [
      "name": "e-lotto.be.",
      "type": 1,
      "TTL": 3600,
      "data": ""

So chances are it’s a HTTP level firewall.
