Global Village has decided to absorb VAT cost on its entry ticket to retain the price at Dh15 per person. However, rides and other purchases inside the Global Village will be subject to five per cent VAT. Children under the age of 3, people of determination with one companion each and seniors above 65 years old will still have free entry.
The 5% VAT came into play from 1st January on a number of goods and services including water and theme parks, cinemas and other activities related to the entertainment industry. Global Village is a major attraction both for the residents and tourists alike and is visited by thousands every day.
The Global Village is open everyday and visitors can enter from Saturday to Wednesday from 4pm to 12am and until 1am on Thursdays, Fridays, and public holidays.
