Abu Dhabi Int'l rolls out Year of Zayed immigration stamps

Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) has rolled out new immigration stamps commemorating the Year of Zayed in partnership with The Department of Immigration.

All travellers requiring an entry or exit stamp while traveling to or from the airport will receive a special Year of Zayed themed mark in their passport, replacing the regular immigration stamp for the remainder of 2018.

Abdul Majeed Al Khoori, acting CEO at Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “Our founding father Sheikh Zayed Al Nahyan established a policy and practice of welcoming international guests to our shores, as well as frequently traveling around the world for the considerable and impactful diplomacy that gained him global recognition.

“To have his image and legacy imprinted in passports traveling through Abu Dhabi Airport is a fitting commemoration as we celebrate the Year of Zayed and reflect on his values and principles,” Al Khoori added.

2018 was declared the Year of Zayed by Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates, marking 100 years since the birth of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founding father of the UAE.
