GDRFA welcomes Dubai visitors with special Ramadan stamp


The General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) in Dubai has launched unique initiatives to welcome visitors arriving through the city’s air and land ports during Ramadan.

Immigration officers are marking passports with a special stamp featuring the #RamadanInDubai logo, which has been designed by Brand Dubai, the creative arm of the Government of Dubai Media Office.

The GDRFA is also providing visitors with complimentary du SIM cards to ensure seamless communication during their stay.

Additionally, visitors receive a QR code that they can scan to access Brand Dubai's #DubaiDestinations guide titled ‘Ramadan Events in Dubai’.

These initiatives were launched as part of the Dubai Media Council's #RamadanInDubai campaign, which merges the efforts of more than 20 entities to bring the vibrance and joy of Ramadan celebrations to people across the city.

Lieutenant General Mohammed Al Marri, Director General of the GDRFA Dubai, said that such community initiatives support efforts to strengthen Dubai's position as a leading global tourism destination.

The ‘Ramadan Events in Dubai’ guide lists the city’s diverse destinations and experiences, offering valuable information to enhance visitors’ stay during the holy month.

It also provides a comprehensive list of attractions and events across Dubai, including Ramadan traditions, festivities and family-friendly activities.
