In those instances where security is of paramount importance, we put in place various measures to ensure our clients’ safety. For example, we do not use branded apparel or items in order to maintain a low profile, unless instructed otherwise by our clients. Furthermore, we keep all doors locked and windows closed as an added safety measure.- There is a threat of terrorism within the U.A.E. and travellers are urged to remain vigilant, particularly in public and heavily populated areas. Monitor the media for information about potential threats or security risks. Take care to ensure your personal safety, at all times.- It must be remembered that the U.A.E. as a whole is an Islamic nation.
