Indian Rupee is Now Accepted at Dubai Aiports


Indian tourists don’t have to convert the Indian rupee while shopping at Dubai Duty Free airports

Dubai: Indian tourists don’t have to convert the Indian rupee while shopping at Dubai Duty Free airports as the currency is now acceptable at all three terminals of Dubai International Airport and at Al Maktoum Airport.

“Yes, we have started accepting the Indian rupee,” a Dubai duty free staff told Gulf News on Wednesday.

Nearly 90 million passengers passed through Dubai airports last year. Of them, 12.2 million were Indians. Earlier Indian travelers had to convert the rupee into Dollar, Dirham or Euro before they could shop at Dubai Duty Free shops.  “This is a great move and will benefit us immensely,” said an Indian tourist.

With the latest move, the Indian rupee has become the 16th currency to be accepted for transaction at Dubai Duty Free since its opening in December 1983.
