Three months out from the main event, Expo 2020 Dubai tickets will go on sale worldwide from 18 July 2021, opening up a spectacular world of innovation and entertainment for visitors from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022.
Expo 2020 has announced three ticket tiers. One-day tickets are priced at AED95 (USD$26); multi-day tickets, offering unrestricted entry for 30 consecutive days, are priced at AED195, and season passes, with unlimited entry for the entire six months of Expo 2020, are priced at AED495.
Expo 2020 tickets include access to all pavilions, events and live performances, and organisers promise up to 60 live events each day, from world-class music, dance and art, to talks and colourful national day celebrations.
Her Excellency Reem Al Hashimy, UAE minister of state for international co-operation and director general of Expo 2020 Dubai, said: “The scale and diversity of what Expo 2020 Dubai has to offer is remarkable, and a testament to the commitment, tenacity and collaborative spirit of each and every individual who has made this happen.
“Excitement is building, and we are ready to welcome everyone to an unmissable six-month celebration, the likes of which the world has yet to experience. No two days at Expo will be the same, and with so much on offer, every guest will be inspired to visit as many times as possible, to witness the collaborative power of innovation and collaboration and to join the making of a new world.”
Children under the age of 18 and students holding a valid student ID from any academic institution in the world will be given free entry, offering younger visitors access to a wealth of learning opportunities and inspirational experiences.
In line with Expo 2020’s commitment to host the most inclusive event in World Expo history, complimentary tickets will be available for disabled visitors, while those over 60 can also enter for free.
Tickets can be purchased online from 18 July at expo2020dubai.com and via 2,500 Authorised Ticket Resellers, including online travel agents, tour operators, hotel groups and airlines from 100-plus markets around the world.
Organisers have expressed their readiness to bring the world together in one place and emphasise that Expo 2020 has implemented a far-reaching programme of precautionary measures to ensure the safety of all visitors, participants and staff, working in close collaboration with the UAE ministry of health and Dubai Health Authority, and in line with the latest information and advice from the World Health Organisation.
These include sanitisation stations across the site, mandatory face-mask wearing and the implementation of social-distancing regulations. Building on the UAE’s successful vaccination programme, Expo 2020 is also offering free Covid-19 vaccinations to its workforce and all official participants and their staff.
Organisers at a media briefing on 1 July said that a maximum of 120,000 people per day would be allowed on site and were aiming to attract a total of 25 million ‘physical’ visits to the event, inclusive of domestic and international visitors.
