The 91st KSA National Day comes as land and air borders between Saudi Arabia and UAE reopen. Dubai is a popular destination for Saudis and it will “warmly welcome families and visitors arriving by car or plane”.

Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO of Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), said: “This year’s KSA National Day is a cause for much celebration for UAE residents and Saudi citizens alike. Dubai is ready to welcome back visitors from KSA. The reopening of borders and transport links between the two nations has come at the perfect time, and we are looking forward to receiving families who have made the journey from Saudi to celebrate their country’s national day in Dubai, their home away from home.”
