What to take a child to Dubai 

Of course, the presence of a child during a vacation causes a lot of trouble. Therefore, most parents, when planning a trip, leave their child with their grandparents. But thanks to the experience of many families vacationing with children in Dubai, we can safely say: a trip with a child can be comfortable and even pleasant, only careful preparation is necessary.

Going on vacation, you need to:

What documents are required to enter the UAE?

  • International passport. Important: its validity period must be at least 6 months from the beginning of the planned trip; 
  • The child’s passport. This applies to citizens of Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan. Russians can paste photos of children into one of the old-style parental passports;

Dubai is one of the hottest cities in the world. In summer, the temperature reaches +40°С, and in autumn and winter it drops to +15°С. Based on this, it is believed that the best time to rest with a child is the period from October to March.

What should children take on vacation? It is necessary on average 2 sets of change of clothes per day, if the child is small, namely: 

– underwear – one or two sets per day; 

– t-shirts, T-shirts, shorts for boys and girls;

– dress and skirts for girls; 

– a jacket or a windbreaker with a hood and long sleeves, trousers and/or jeans. They will be needed during evening walks, especially in winter;

– light suit with long sleeves, preferably linen;

– a headdress that protects from the sun; 

– beach shoes; sandals, sandals, light sneakers or moccasins to walk around the city and go on excursions.
