Here 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.
The decision excludes children aged below two years, cabin crew members, transit passengers and 24-hour non-stop trips.
However, it is not clear what kind of safety will be provided to the passengers, or is it safety from the passengers?
