The General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) in Dubai has taken the initiative to design a special stamp for the World Climate Conference "COP28" in order to keep pace with international events, and coinciding with the UAE's hosting of the event, which aims to discuss climate change and take measures to reduce its negative effects.
The design contains the COP28 logo, the Dubai symbol and multiple climate symbols, to be used to stamp the passports of passengers arriving through Dubai airports.
This stamp will remain a memory that chronicles their entry into Dubai, their participation and their endeavor to contribute to the protection of the environment and climate change.
Moreover, it reflects the objectives of the Year of Sustainability and contributes to positive change by promoting awareness and encouraging environmental innovations.
This step reflects Dubai’s commitment to sustainable development and environmental protection. Its GDRFA works to enhance community awareness at the local and global levels, through similar initiatives for the stamp, targeting travelers through its land and airports, and employing various national and social events, in addition to national, regional and global celebrations.
Some 104,000 people, including technical and security staff, have access this year to the "blue zone" dedicated to the actual climate negotiations and the pavilions of the states and organisations present.
