This week only, you can shop VAT-free in Dubai

Until Saturday of this week, residents can enjoy shopping in select outlets across Dubai without having to worry about value-added tax (VAT).

In a Tweet, the Dubai Shopping Festival announced that the Vat-free shopping promotion kicked off today and will run until January 9. Shoppers can also stand a chance to win 100,000 AED this week!

For the next 7 days, residents and visitors can take advantage of worry-free, VAT-less shopping in certain storefronts around Dubai. If you want to crunch numbers, the VAT-free waiver adds an extra 5% off existing promotions!
