For most Australian visitors to the United Arab Emirates the gateway will be Dubai. Many flights from Australia??(Emirates and Qantas)??transit through Dubai and a lot of people choose to stay for 2 or 3 days – mainly to shop. The shopping centres are to be seen to be believed – including a full ski slope in 40 degree heat! Abu Dhabi is similar with Etihad flights stopping there on the way to Europe. Both Dubai and Abu Dhabi are in the United Arab Emirates and use the UAE Dirham.
There is also a campus of Wollongong Uni in Dubai and many Australian Expats live and work in the area.
The Currency Exchange keeps a stock of UAE Dirhams, but it is best to order them in advance, especially if you are planning a big shopping trip! We usually keep a range of denominations.
ATMs will be available in most cities but may be limited beyond the city limits. All ATMs will dispense local currency. If you are taking a Cash Passport to this region it is best to load your funds in Australian dollars. Many of the main tourist hotels have an ATM in the lobby.
