Dubai uses the United Arab Emirates Dirham. For more information on currency conversions visit XE. Before you leave, notify your bank, credit card company, or other financial institutions that you are going overseas. Avoid carrying cash and consider using traveler's checks or major credit cards instead (but make sure they are accepted at your destination before departing on your trip).

There are no rules when it comes to tipping in Dubai. How much you tip varies from profession to profession and is also largely down to personal preference. While tipping is always appreciated in Dubai, it is rarely expected, and no matter if one per cent or 50 per cent is given, the most important thing is to treat service staff with respect.
Imagine your reaction if your deposition had to be rescheduled because of a major local holiday when everything was closed. Don’t let that happen to your depo. You can see a complete list of holidays in Dubai here: timeanddate.com/holidays/united-arab-emirates/.
Check with your physician to see which shots are required and/or recommended for your trip to Dubai. You can check online resources like the U.S. Department of State United Arab Emirates country page or contact the Emirates Embassy or Consulate for current entry requirements. The World Health Organization (WHO) can provide their recommendations for vaccinations and other travel health precautions for your trip abroad.
