Telephone services for visitors

Dubai’s telecommunications industry is operated by two main organisations: Etisalat and Du. Both offer special mobile phone packages for visitors to Dubai.

Etisalat offers a service called ‘Ahlan’, which is valid for 90 days after activation. Subscribers get a local number as well as access to a range of services such as SMS, MMS, caller line identification, call waiting and a location finder. It costs AED 60 which includes AED 25 credit that you can use to make calls.

Du offers a service called Visitor Mobile Line, which costs just AED 49 to activate. Features include pay-by-the-second rates, a Dhs.20 recharge card, and an exclusive travel kit that contains a tourist map and mini guide to Dubai.
For both of these services, visitors will need to present a valid form of ID.
Visitors to Dubai may also use their existing mobile service providers with international roaming.
 
Wi-Fi services are available throughout Dubai and most shopping malls, hotels and airport terminals are Wi-Fi hotspots.
