Nannies and housekeepers will be allowed free entry to the Dubai Expo 2020, the organisers of the mega fair have confirmed.
The Expo media office said they can enter 'as many times as they like’ by producing a copy of their residence visa.
“To take advantage of this fantastic offer, all they need to do is present a copy of their residency and show their job title at the Expo Ticket booth,” Expo 2020 said in a statement.
A single-entry ticket to the fair costs AED 95 while a six-month season pass costs AED 495. A multi-entry pass is available for AED 195 — offering unrestricted entry for 30 consecutive days.
Expo 2020 tickets include access to all pavilions, events and live performances, providing opportunities to enjoy the Expo’s entertainment programme, with up to 60 live events each day, from world-class music, dance and art to insightful talks and colourful national day celebrations.
Other categories that can enjoy free access to Expo 2020 include visitors under 18, senior citizens above 60 years old, students and people of determination or with special needs.
Many families welcomed the decision and said it will be a great relief for visitors who have small children and need help to explore the sprawling site, estimated to be the size of 600 football fields.
“It is a welcome move. I have two small kids and I would not imagine bringing them here without the help of a nanny,” said Amira, an Indian mother of two, aged nine and seven.
She was at the Expo yesterday but without her kids.
“I am definitely going home and telling my nanny who is from Philippines. She will be really happy,” said Amira.
