If you arrived in Dubai on March 20, 2018, you would have got a smiley face on your passport. As a part of world happiness day celebrations, visitors who arrived at the Dubai International Airport were surprised with a smiley face stamp that read Welcome to the Happy UAE. The General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs Dubai was behind the creative idea. Officers who stamped the passport cartoon masks, classic goatee, and gloves, and even clicked photos with travelers. That wasn’t it as Dubai Metro commuters received yellow smiling balloon at all metro stations. The balloon was given to commuters who took bus rides from metro stations between 8 am to 4.30pm to Mall of the Emirates, Al Jaffaliya, Al Rashidiya, Dubai Mall, Al Ras, and JLT. The UAE government will be hosting even more activities as a part of the Happiness Week and International Day of Happiness, all of which were conducted by the Roads and Transport Authority. Emirates, the national airlines of the United Arab Emirates, has taken International Happiness Day very seriously. Employees working at the Emirates Group Headquarters were treated extra especially as some of them were given one free service-related ticket to any location on the airline’s route network. All employees are given chocolates, and happy messages were written in elevators to uplift their mood. Even 100 lucky Dubai taxi passengers were given a free ride from the airport to their direction.
