I manage a Fan Page for a hotel in Dubai. My client's address is not being recognized by Facebook as we currently do not use postal codes here.

Is there a way to activate the "check in" mechanism without this?

When creating the Page, you should have chosen the Local Business or Place category.

If this was not done originally, then it can be fixed after-the-fact using:

Edit Page ==> Update Public Info ==> Basic Information:

change Category: to Local Businesses.
