On Tuesday, the Dubai Municipality said that Dubai Frame has changed its policy of allowing senior citizens for free. It confirmed that the elderly visitors will no longer be permitted free entry to Dubai Frame.
“A few days before Ramadan, a circular was issued saying that entry to Dubai Frame is not going to be free anymore for senior citizens. However, it will continue to be free for people of determination and two accompanying people,” it said in a statement.
It has been stated clearly on the website of the Dubai Frame, infants (under three years) can also still enjoy free access to the Frame which recently became the “Largest Building in the Shape of a Picture Frame.”
A 71-year-old Indian expat Dhiraj Mohindar and his 69-year-old wife went to visit Dubai Frame on Monday. They said that they along with some other elderly citizens were denied free entry in spite of having proof of their age. They were told that they have to pay Dh50.
