Travellers flying into Dubai today were greeted with smiley faces both in person and in their passports.
The General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs distributed happiness stamps to all customs officers at Dubai airports.
The stamp is inscribed in red with a jovial smiley face and reads “Welcome to the Happy UAE” in both Arabic and English.
The date, March 20, 2018, is also featured near the top right corner of the stamp.
Officers clad in friendly cartoon masks and gloves sporting a classic goatee greeted travellers and posed for pictures with old and young alike.
