The new law reduces to cost on families visiting the UAE during the summer holidays which supports family tourism in the UAE.
According the officials, this will boost the UAE’s position as one of top touristic destinations for families. Families always visit the country to enjoy its various family activities, festivals and historical destinations.
This law was among several other attempts to boost tourism as it is one of the main sectors that contributes to the growth of economy in the UAE.

Last month the cabinet approved another law to exempt transit passengers from entrance visa fees for 48 hours allowing them the option of 96 hours extension for 50 AED fees.
Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Ajman are also contributing to such attempts as they announced earlier this year reduction on hotels fees for tourists.
