Central Bank of the UAE has announced that it would put in circulation currency notes of Dh 500 and Dh 5 denominations, reprinted with tactile marks for the blind and sight impaired people.

The banknotes will include new tactile features engraved in bleed-off intaglio printing on the edge of the banknotes' short sides. The tactile feature for Dh 500 denomination consists of a pair of three horizontal lines, separated by a recognisable distance, around the middle of the right and left short sides of the note.

The Dh 5 denomination will consist of a horizontal line in the middle of the right and left short sides of the note.

The overall design and other specifications of the two notes are the same as in the currency notes currently in circulation.
