UAE (Direct route)


As with many countries in the Middle East, messages to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are heavily filtered by carriers. In many cases, even legitimate application to person traffic is blocked and so cheap signalling/roaming links do not deliver well especially for high value content such as password delivery or alerts! Additionally, carriers in the UAE filter heavily non direct routes and in same cases send fake delivery receipts. You may think your message is being delivered, but it is not!

In order to get around this filtering, Nexmo uses our new Adaptive Routing to all networks in the UAE! This includes our new local direct connections, which means you will be able to bypass filters as well as improve delivery.

This direct connection includes handset delivery receipts, delivery to ported numbers and concatenated and unicode support. No religious, political or adult content is allowed. Please note that Sender ID will be replaced by an alpha sender or a random international numeric sender in order to ensure delivery.
