DUBAI: A TRAVEL GUIDE

Located on the East coast of the Arabian Peninsula, Dubai has been one of the fastest growing cities in the world and now acts as a business hub for global trade and innovation. It also happens to be one of the most populated cities in the UAE. The city boasts not just its monetary wealth but also the wealth of its Arabic culture and heritage. The unique amalgamation of business and leisure attracts people from all walks of life to this extravagant city.

Millions of visitors’ flock to Dubai for its serene deserts and beaches, extravagant hotels and shopping complexes, culture and heritage and also for the endless business opportunities that it offers.

CURRENCY:

“United Arab Emirates dirham’ is the official currency of Dubai and is often abbreviated as AED on the currency exchanges and as Dhs or DH in the local transactions.

The currency notes are available in denominations of

  • 5 AED (color: brown)
  • 10 AED (color: green)
  • 20 AED (color: bluish green)
  • 50 AED (color: purple)
  • 100 AED (color: red)
  • 200 AED (color: brown)
  • 500 AED (color: blue)
  • 1000 AED (color: green)

A general word of advice would be to carry smaller denomination notes with you as it might be difficult to get change for larger notes. Especially when you are paying for your taxis or buying something at a convenience store.

It is fairly easy to convert your currency to Dirhams in Dubai as the market is regulated tightly. A simple tip to get better exchange rates would be to exchange a small amount of money at the airport just to cover up for basic expenses like taxi fare and food and then exchange the remaining of your money once you reach the city.

VISA:

Different criteria have to be met by people from different nationalities in order to get a VISA to enter Dubai.

The following are the different types of Visas’ that you can apply for:

The visit visa can be applied by tourists who are going to stay in the UAE for over 14 days either to meet family or for business. They can apply for the ‘short term visit visa’ if the stay is for 30 days or for the ‘long term visit visa’ which is valid for 90 days. Both the short term and the long-term visit visas are non-renewable. A certain deposit has to be made before entry on behalf of the visitor which is reimbursed once he/she exits the country

LANGUAGE:

The official language of Dubai is Arabic which is used in verbal and written contexts locally, in legal systems and government offices. Being a global business hub, you can easily get by having used just English because close to 70% of the people are expatriates in the city. You would definitely be more welcomed if you could converse in the local dialect.

Also, the prices for accommodation are considerably lower due to the decline in the inflow of tourists.
