News just in: Tourists over the age of 18 can now receive a free SIM card on arrival in Dubai. Seriously!
The SIM card can be collected from the immigration counter at the Dubai airport. It is a complete package, with complimentary 3 minutes talk time and 20 MB data which will be valid for one month.
