NOTE! The visa rules can change so we recommend that you check with the country’s embassy well in advance of travel. The following information is subject to change:

For Swedes with citizens, a visa to the United Arab Emirates is not required for stays of up to 90 days. You will automatically receive a 90-day residence permit stamped in the passport upon arrival.

Bus and metro
Public transport in Dubai and Abu Dhabi is both efficient and cheap. It consists of bus and metro / metro and water buses. Most employees speak English so it is easy to get help. You pay with a travel card that you buy at shops and at the larger stations.

There are plenty of taxis in the cities and it is an easy way to get there. All cars use taximeters.

Car rental
The road network in the United Arab Emirates is good and it works to travel around the country with your own rental car. However, you have to be extremely careful inside Dubai itself as the traffic is fast and heavy with far too many car accidents as a result, but if you want to make a road trip around the country or maybe to Oman, the traffic works much better.

In most countries, tips are part of the salaries of employees in the service industry. Therefore, it is good practice (and sometimes directly necessary) to give tips to, for example, cleaning staff, waiters, guides, drivers, etc. depending on the country you are visiting. Therefore, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with how much is normally given in tips and to whom before you embark on your journey. Find information on tips in Lonely Planet’s guidebooks.
