Public Phones and Calling Cards


Public phones are very rare in the United Arab Emirates. What few phones exist accept only prepaid calling cards, not cash or coins. In an emergency, it is advisable to ask a resident or store employee to use their phone.

Calling Cards

Prepaid cards can be purchased at shops like drug stores and newsstands.
