Accessibility to Free Wi-Fi

Free wi-fi is available at most of Dubai hotels, tourist attractions, and many public places, but if you prefer to keep connected all the time. 
Often, tourists to Dubai above the age of 18 get a free Tourism SIM card from telecom operator du when they cross immigration at Dubai International Airport. This offer includes a three-minute talk time and 20MB of mobile data for free valid for 90 days.

You can top this up at a du kiosk in the arrivals area of Dubai International airport or Dubai Duty Free. You can also purchase phone plans as voice and data bundles, pay-as-you-go plans, or prepaid recharge cards.

You must be 18 years or above to register your SIM card, which requires your passport or ID card along with your valid UAE tourist visa.

When making calls, remember that mobile phone numbers in the UAE are ten digits long and the country code for the UAE is +971. To call your mobile in the UAE from abroad, callers will need to dial 00971 and then your number.
