The Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) has announced the opening of its Visitors’ Information Bureau (VIB) at the Terminal 3 of Dubai International Airport as part of its efforts to provide assistance to visitors in exploring the emirate during their business tours and leisure holidays.

Mr. Salah Rashid Al Ansari, DTCM Director of Visitors’ Information Bureaus, said this was the sixth such facility operated by the department. The other VIBs are located in Dubai International Airport Terminal 1, Deira City Centre, Ibn Battuta Mall, Wafi City and BurJuman Centre.

The VIBs offer complete information about the emirate and its tourist attractions and facilities to visitors, including various events and entertainment programmes and shopping promotions happening in Dubai and shopping promotions. They also assist visitors in providing information about hotels and hotel apartments.

Mr. Al Ansari thanked the Dubai Department of Civil Aviation for allowing VIBs operations at the airport. He also thanked the shopping malls for allowing the DTCM set up VIBs in their premises which helps the department in making the emirate more visitors-friendly.

One of the main objectives of the DTCM is to provide Tourism & Commercial information to both tourists and business visitors to Dubai. These bureaus distribute tourism brochures, booklets about Dubai and tourist facilities.
