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.
And no big deal, but Dubai is the first city in the world to provide tourists with free SIM cards.
The initiative, called ‘Connect with Happiness’, was launched by Smart Dubai, in collaboration with General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) and network provider du on Sunday.
