Dubai has unveiled a new Nol card tailored specifically for school and university students, offering an array of exclusive benefits and serving as an internationally recognized student ID. The innovative card grants access to a multitude of services and discounts worldwide, providing students with enhanced convenience and savings opportunities.

One of the standout features of the new Nol card is the significant discounts it offers, with students eligible for up to 70% off and promotional offers at various Dubai retail outlets. This includes school and university canteens, where students can enjoy discounted purchases using their Nol card as a mode of payment. Additionally, the card extends generous discounts of up to 50% on public transport fares within Dubai, easing the financial burden on students navigating the city's transportation network.

Salah Almarzooqi, Director of the Automated Collection Systems Department at the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), revealed that the rollout of the new card is slated for the upcoming academic year, commencing in September 2024. The application process for the card is streamlined through the Nol Pay app, offering students the convenience of applying from the comfort of their homes and having the card delivered directly to them. Furthermore, existing student Nol cardholders will have the option to upgrade to the new card once it becomes available.

In Dubai, many students rely on public transport for their daily commute between home and educational institutions. Presently, students are issued personalized blue cards upon submission of their Emirates ID and student ID, featuring their names and photographs. The introduction of the new Nol card represents a significant advancement in catering to the diverse needs of the student community, enhancing their overall experience and facilitating seamless access to essential services.

The collaboration between the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) and the ISIC Association culminated in the signing of an agreement to launch the new card during the Mena Transport Congress and Exhibition. The ISIC card, renowned as the only internationally accepted student identity card, offers a multitude of benefits, including student status verification, global discounts, and access to the global student community.

Mohammed Al Mudharreb, CEO of the Corporate Technology Support Services Sector at RTA, emphasized the partnership's focus on enriching students' daily commutes through Dubai's extensive public transport network, encompassing the Metro, tram, buses, and marine transport. Beyond transportation, the new Nol card also facilitates payments at retail stores, school, and university canteens, streamlining transactions and enhancing convenience for students.

Moreover, the new Nol card empowers parents to actively manage their children's accounts, enabling them to oversee card balances and set daily expenditure limits. This feature underscores the card's commitment to promoting financial responsibility among students while providing parents with peace of mind regarding their children's spending habits. Overall, the introduction of the new Nol card represents a significant step forward in enhancing the student experience in Dubai, fostering greater accessibility, affordability, and convenience for the student community.
