First up, let’s explore the generous offer rolled out by the authorities. With all that the Expo 2020 has to offer, it’s literally impossible to explore its wonders in a day. Simply put, a day is not enough.

Keeping this in mind, the organisers announced an incredible offer that gives a month’s access to the Expo site for the price of a day ticket – Dh95.

This means, if you purchase the October Pass, you can come back to the site for 31 days and explore its 192 Country Pavilions, 60 daily live events and 200 food and beverage outlets.

Hurry, though, the promotion is available only till October 15.

The following categories get tickets for free:

- Kids and youth under 18.

- Tertiary and higher education students.

- Seniors aged 60 years and above.

- People of determination (+1 companion at half price).

The point to note here is that all visitors, including those eligible for free tickets, must obtain a ticket to enter the Expo site.
