Did you get this special stamp on your passport in UAE?

The Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) has rolled out new immigration stamps commemorating the Year of Zayed. This has been done in partnership with the Department of Immigration.


All travelers requiring an entry or exit stamp while traveling to or from the airport will receive a special Year of Zayed themed mark on their passport. This will replace the regular immigration stamp for the rest of the year (2018).

Abdul Majeed Al Khoori, the  Acting Chief Executive Officer at Abu Dhabi Airports, said that: "Our founding father, late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan established a policy and practice of welcoming international guests to our shores, as well as frequently traveling around the world for the considerable and impactful diplomacy that gained him global recognition.

"To have his image and legacy imprinted on the passports while traveling through Abu Dhabi Airport is a fitting commemoration as we celebrate the Year of Zayed and reflect on his values and principles," Al Khoori added.

The year 2018 was declared as the Year of Zayed by The President, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, marking 100 years since the birth of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founding father of the UAE.
