Car park types
Once you’ve arrived at your parking zone of choice, you will see signs further directing you to specific sections depending on your Expo ticket type. The types of parking are as follows:
Premium Parking is not open to the public and is reserved for official Expo-invited guests
Available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Priced at AED 95 per visit and covers the entire day. If your ticket comes with valet parking vouchers, you can use that instead of paying
People of determination parking
A valid people of determination parking permit from the UAE is required for access. Overseas visitors can apply for a temporary parking permit from the Dubai Road and Transport Authority (RTA) at Umm Ramool or Al Manarah centres with their passport, visa, personal photo and proof of Dubai address or either show a parking permit from the home country or evidence of disability.
POD areas can be found in the three district zones: Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability Parking.
Nissan is an official partner of Expo 2020 Dubai. As such, visitors driving a Nissan vehicle may park in this reserved area. In the Mobility parking zone, the lot can be found in the H block, whereas in the Sustainability zone, Nissan drivers can head to the G block.
Media personnel get to park closer to the gate in the E block of the Sustainability parking zone. To access this lot, make sure you have your accredited pass on you.
Jubilee experience parking
Those who are Jubilee Experience ticket holders can park in this dedicated section at the Sustainability parking zone, marked in black.
