GDRFA Welcomes Visitors To Dubai With A Special #RamadanInDubai Stamp

The General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) in Dubai announced that it has launched two initiatives aimed at extending a warm welcome to visitors arriving through the city’s air and land ports during the Holy Month of Ramadan.

Upon their arrival in Dubai, immigration officers are marking visitors’ passports with a special stamp featuring the #RamadanInDubai logo. The logo has been designed by Brand Dubai, the creative arm of the Government of Dubai Media Office.

Officers are also providing visitors with complimentary SIM cards, distributed in collaboration with GDRFA’s strategic partner, du, 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’.

The initiatives were launched as part of the #RamadanInDubai campaign that was announced by the Dubai Media Council under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Second Deputy Ruler of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Media Council (DMC). The campaign, implemented by Brand Dubai, merges the efforts of more than 20 entities in Dubai to bring the vibrance and joy of Ramadan celebrations to people across the city.

They also underscore the emirate’s commitment to providing exceptional services and experiences to all visitors, which reflect Dubai’s unique identity as a hub for creativity and innovation.
