About Dubai

What you need to know before visiting Dubai:

Dubai’s culture is firmly rooted in the Islamic traditions of Arabia. However Dubai is very tolerant of the customs of its visitors and is relatively liberal when it comes to European dress codes and serving alcohol in hotels. Among the most highly prized virtues are courtesy and hospitality, visitors are sure to be charmed by the genuine warmth and friendliness of the people.

Nationals of the following countries will be issued with a visit visa free of charge and valid for 30 days at the passport control desk upon arrival in the UAE: United Kingdom, France, Italy, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Austria, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Portugal, Ireland, Greece, Cyprus, Finland, Malta, Spain, Monaco, Vatican City, Iceland, Andorra, San Marino, Leichtenstein, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Brunei, Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong or member of all GCC countries.
People of nationalities not listed are solely responsible for obtaining visas for themselves, their representatives and invitees. For a small fee, some hotels provide a visa service provided sufficient time is given for the application to be processed. Visitor passports must be valid for at least 6 months from date of departure.  The Organisers are not in a position to sponsor visa applications. The visit visa does not entitle the visitor to take up permanent work in the UAE. All visitors require a full passport for their visit.

Local Time:
The UAE is four hours ahead of GMT. There is no summer time saving when clocks are altered.

Dubai has a sub-tropical, arid climate.  May to October are the warmest months with temperatures reaching the high 40’s and high humidity, the rest of the year temperatures fall anywhere between the mid 20’s to 30’s.  Rainfall is infrequent falling mainly in the cooler months around November to March.

The official language of the country is Arabic, although English is the official business language.  English is widely used and most road and shop signs, restaurant menus, etc are in both languages.

Food and Drink:
Dubai offers pretty much every type of international cuisine imaginable. Whilst restaurants located in hotels are able to offer alcohol, some of the best places to eat are the small street side stands around town.
