Good news for Indian tourists: Dubai Duty Free shops now accepting rupee
Dubai: Indian tourists shopping at duty free shops at Dubai airports can now pay for their purchases in Indian rupees 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 said on Wednesday.
Nearly 90 million passengers passed through Dubai aiports last year. Of them, 12.2 million were Indians.
Earlier Indian travellers had to convert the rupee into US dollars, UAE dirhams or euros before they could shop at Dubai’s 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.
