Getting to Dubai
Dubai Expo 2020 is a global event, a time the United Arab Emirates as a nation opens its shores to the world. It’s a time to witness various things that makes this Arab nation what it is.

It’s a booming economy, the youngest and most viable economy in the entire Middle East and I must say being here with your wealth is the best thing you could do in a lifetime.
Do You Need Visa For Dubai Expo 2020?
So the first step to planning your visit to the Emirates would be checking to know if you’re a citizen of a country that requires an entry visa to the United Arab Emirates.
This is important because if you happen to be a citizen of any of the GCC or any of these countries, then you qualify for free entry, you just need to show your international passport.
But if you’re from a country that needs an entry visa, you have a lot of options ranging from 7 days to 6 months visa.
Well, Expo 2020 is a 6-month program. So getting a 6 months visa would be the right thing if you intend to stay throughout the event.
So I suppose you’ve known your stand regarding visa (Don’t worry, do long as you’ve never been depleted from the United Arab Emirates before, your visa would be issued within 72 hours)
Then, your next on the list is getting an accommodation plan. If you intend to stay longer, you could make good arrangements with any of Dubai’s Great hotels. The price per night I’m sure is affordable but depends on your taste and budget.
Well, Dubai has hotels as cheap as 100Dhs per night, just navigate the hotels and find what suits your needs.
