Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates, formerly known as the Trucial States. In 1971, six of the states formally merged to form the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and were joined in 1972 by a seventh state. This oil rich country has no inland water and no arable land. Located on the Persian Gulf, UAE uses desalination plants for water. Approximately 2.5 million people live in the UAE.

Find United Arab Emirates Calling Cards

If you live in the United States and want to call the United Arab Emirates, using a prepaid calling card is an excellent choice. For as little as $.17 per minute you can reach family and friends or business associates any time. You can find prepaid calling cards online, and you can purchase them using a credit or debit card any time.

The key to finding the card that is right for you at the right price is to know how calling cards are charged. First of all, you will usually see a per minute rate. Obviously, the lower that rate, the better, but you should know up front that many of the cards with the lowest per minute rates come with additional charges such as per call connection fees, monthly or weekly maintenance fees, and an expiration date anywhere from 30 to 90 days or so. If you haven't used all of your minutes by the expiration date, you will forfeit the remaining ones.

The best cards come with a reasonable per minute charge and no per call connection or maintenance fees. In addition, if you plan to call UAE regularly, you might want to get a rechargeable card. Just be sure to add minutes before the expiration date, and all of your remaining minutes will automatically roll over to the new date. Another issue to consider is the minute rounding up that comes with every card. The lower the rounding up minutes, the more calls you will get from your card.
