Tourists visiting Dubai will be given a pre-paid mobile SIM card, absolutely free of charge.
The complimentary tourist SIM pack will be handed to all tourists who are over the age of 18 at the immigration counter, according to a report in Khaleej Times.
The SIM comes with three minutes of talk time and 20MB of mobile data.
The initiative has been launched by Du, the General Directorate of Residency and Foreign Affairs (GDRFA) and Smart Dubai.
Tourists can top up the SIM for three packages – small medium and large. It will be deactivated once they leave the country.For all the latest travel news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
