The Dubai Assured stamp

Ever since Dubai reopened their borders to visitors again, the Dubai authorities have launched the Dubai Assured stamp to assure tourists and residents that establishments in Dubai have adopted all the necessary precautionary measures and the highest safety standards and protocols to stop the spread of COVID-19.

As a prerequisite to resuming their businesses, every hotel, restaurant, beverage establishment, and attractions in Dubai should have the Dubai Assured stamp. The Dubai Assured stamp is granted only to establishments compliant with the strict safety and hygiene measures in the UAE.
