Abu Dhabi: A special passport for Expo 2020 Dubai was launched on Thursday to help visitors ‘travel’ around the world and explore over 200 participating pavilions.
“Visitors will be able to ‘travel’ around the world, with a fun, customisable passport that keeps a record of their journey as they explore 200-plus participating pavilions,” the Dubai Media Office tweeted.
Just like a real passport, each Expo 2020 passport is different and includes enhanced security features such as a unique number, an area with a passport size photo, personal details and hidden watermark photos on each page.
The 50-page booklet also includes picture of the pavilions of the three main Expo 2020 themes – the Opportunity Pavilion’s Mission Possible, the Mobility Pavilion’s Alif, and the Sustainability Pavilion’s Terra – as well as the famous al-Wasl Plaza.
Visitors can purchase the passport for 20 AED from all official Expo 2020 Dubai stores across the site, from Dubai’s Airport Terminal 3, or online.
