Visitors to public parks in Dubai have to use Nol card for entry as paper tickets will no longer be issued.
Visitors need to purchase Nol cards to pay entry fee at Zabeel Park, Al Mamzar Beach Park, Mushrif Park and Creek Park.
Strangely, residents from all the emirates are being asked to use Nol cards to enter these parks even though the smart card is being used only in Dubai.
Those who do not have the Nol cards can purchase the Dh25 denomination Nol cards from the ticket counters. Dh6 is used for card activation and Dh19 balance can be used for paying the entry fee to the parks.
Only tourists who are visiting the city for a few days are exempted from this rule. However, if the tourists are coming with their relatives living in the UAE, they need to get the Nol card as all UAE residents need to use Nol card to enter the parks now.
