If you're short on time and need your currency in a hurry, check out our Click & Collect United Arab Emirates Dirham page to find a local supplier near you.

United Arab Emirates Dirham rate over the past 90 days

Over the past 90 days, the United Arab Emirates Dirham has increased by 1.06% from 4.7507 on the 20th July to 4.8010 today. This means £750 will buy you D37.72 more today than it would have three months ago. The highest United Arab Emirates Dirham rate we recorded over this period was 4.8010 today and a low of 4.6029 on the 15th August. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our United Arab Emirates Dirham exchange rate history page.

The United Arab Emirates Dirham is the official currency of the United Arab Emirates; a country bordering Oman and Saudi Arabia in the Arabian Peninsula that is composed of a federation of 7 separately-governed emirates. Since discovering oil in the 1980s, the UAE's prospects have improved dramatically, transforming the country from a poor, desolate desert area into a modernised and rich state.

The UAE Dirham is pegged to the US Dollar at a rate of $1 USD = 3.7 AED, and is widely stocked by most bureau de change here in the UK which means competition is strong and good deals can be found by comparing suppliers. You should probably budget in the region of 1,000 AED per day.

For those that don't want to take large amounts of cash with them to the Emirates, consider a prepaid currency card as an alternative method of payment. They are accepted all over the UAE but unlike UK credit or debit cards they will not incur additional transaction fees when they are used.

Before you travel to United Arab Emirates you can get advice from the UK Government website

If you are a British citizen then you can obtain a 30 day visa for your stay in the United Arab Emirates upon arrival and if you would like to extend your stay in the UAE then you can pay for an extended visa whilst in the country. Just ensure you do not overstay your visa as you will be fined and your passport must be valid for at least 6 months when you arrive.

Whilst in the UAE if you intend on working then you will need to obtain a working permit which can be valid for up to 3 months and if you do not get your probationary work permit before starting work then you could face a fine, imprisonment and deportation.

Make sure when leaving the country that you cancel your work permit otherwise you could be arrested upon re-entry to the UAE at a later date. You are also advised to make sure you do not have any outstanding debts when trying to leave as legal disputes need to be settled before you can leave the country.

If need to take prescribed drugs with you to the United Arab Emirates then you will need obtain the necessary approval and paperwork from the UAE Ministry of Health as some prescribed drugs or over the counter drugs might not be allowed and you will need prior permission before travelling to the country.

Prepaid United Arab Emirates Dirham Cards

Prepaid currency cards are designed specifically to be used overseas. They work the same way as a standard UK bank card, except their fees are lower when used in United Arab Emirates and the exchange rates are much better than those offered by most high street banks.
