Dubai: All tourists entering Dubai will now receive a free pre-paid mobile SIM card as part of ‘happiness’ project launched by Du Telecommunications, the General Directorate of Residency and Foreign Affairs (GDRFA- Dubai), and Smart Dubai.

To activate the complimentary SIM, all travellers need to do is insert the SIM card, dial *122# and follow the instructions to get connected through du’s outstanding service.

The free ‘tourist sim pack’ will be handed over to all tourists above 18-years-old at the Immigration counter.

“The traveller will be given the SIM card on the basis of their travel document, which includes the travellers’ passport and a valid visit visa.”

The pilot phase of “Connect with Happiness” project allows travellers with transit visa, visit visa, visa on arrival, and GCC citizens arriving at Dubai International Airport to take advantage of complimentary du Tourist SIM cards. The SIM card will provide the tourist three-minute talk time and 20 MB mobile data for free. The SIM card will be valid for 30 days, an entire month, or the duration of the tourist’s stay.

Authorities believe this project will enhance the happiness of all visitors entering Dubai. Currently, the SIM will be offered to passengers exiting Dubai Airport terminals 1,2, and 3.

Travellers will have access to the Tourist SIM package, which comes preloaded with a free SIM card, three flexi- minutes and three-day validity.

Once activated, tourists can then opt to add more calling minutes or data via three recharge options:

1.    Pay Dh25 and get 150 MB data – 10 flexible minutes, three-day validity

2.    Pay Dh55 and get 500 MB data – 20 flexible minutes, seven-day validity

3.    Pay Dh110 and get 2 GB data – 40 flexible minutes and 14-day validity

To activate the complimentary SIM, all travellers need to do is insert the SIM card, dial *122# and follow the instructions to get connected through du’s outstanding service.

Promoters from du will also be present near immigration desks at Dubai International Airport to help visitors.
