You can bring any amount of money in and out from Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) at anytime if right protocol is followed, but there is a restriction to the amount of cash you are allowed to take in or out of the country.
When talking about the amount of cash you can take in or out of UAE, it may imply the amount of cash someone can carry in his wallet or luggage without having to declare it in writing a paper at the point of his entry or leaving the country.
