You can't take dollars out of an ATM in Dubai - if you use your dollar card then you will get dirhams and the card will be debited for the equivalent dollar amount.

Agree with Latimer, however, would like to add that not all bank Forex cards will work at all ATMs abroad. I think you will have to confirm that from the bank or financial institution which is issuing you the card. You can always carry that old favourite aka travellers' cheques.

I wouldn't take travellers cheques to Dubai. All of the exchange houses give a much poorer exchange rate for travellers cheques than they do for cash and you are better just taking cash or using an ATM, either with your own bank card or one loaded with your own currency that converts to whichever country you are in
