The project was launched by the Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (EITC), the General Directorate of Residency and Foreign Affairs (GDRFA), and the Smart Dubai Office.

The move means Dubai will also be the first-ever city to provide tourists with free SIM cards. They’ll be available to all tourists over the age of 18, and according to Major General Mohammad Al Marri, the director-general of the GDRFA, will be valid for one month and include three complimentary minutes as well as 20 megabytes of data.
