Dubai AirportHere is another new “service fee” imposed on people living or visiting UAE.

As reported here, passengers using UAE airports will soon be required to pay a safety fee of Dhs 5.

The decree, published in the official gazette, will be enforced on July 28 and it involves the levying of Dhs 5 as “a passenger security and safety services fee”, according to the Arabic language daily Alkhaleej.
