    • Need to clear customs at Dubai Airport in order to check in for another separate flight?

      by hira90 Online Now Jan 17, 2015 at 9:16 AM

      Hi everyone, I intend to purchase 2 separate tickets to fly to Karachi. Its kind of cheaper that way instead of a connecting flight.

      I intend to fly to Dubai first with Singapore Airlines and then proceed to fly with Emirates from Dubai International Airport to Karachi. 

      My question is do I need to clear the customs and collect my luggage before I can check in for my next flight with Emirates? My son and I are Singapore Citizens so we have visa on arrival to Dubai but my husband is a Pakistani. He needs a visa to enter Dubai. We intend to remain at the airport and not go to the city. In my case, will visa be needed for my husband? Do we need to clear customs or can we just stay at the Dubai Airport Hotel without any visa required?

    • Where to stay for 1st time visit?

      Hi all. We are due to visit Dubai in June for a 9 night stay. We haven't been before, and after so much looking at hotels on the internet, we decided to book up at the Hilton Ras Khaimah Resort, Spa & Villas, as it looks lovely, but after realising it's an hour from Dubai, we are considering changing this, as we would like to visit the city to see some of the attractions as well as relax, so we are now finding it difficult to book somewhere to stay that will allow us to see the sights of Dubai, but also relax & chill out in the sun. Happy to stay a little way out, but is Ras Khaimah Resort, Spa & Villas to far? Or are their any other hotels nearer that will offer us the holiday we are looking for. Thanks for any helpful tips. Dean.

    • Baggage Policy

      by kpbang Online Now Dec 22, 2014 at 2:56 PM

      Hi Friends,
      I am planning to travel from NY( US) to INDIA via Emirates. On my course of journey, I would like to get down in Dubai and take a 4 day tour. Planning to apply for 96 Hr Transit VISA well in advance, once the tickets are booked. However my question on baggage is as follows. From NY , I can check in two baggage s of 23Kgs each ( Total = 46Kg)which I will collect in Duabi Airport. Once I finish off my Dubai trip, Will Emirates allow me to check-in the same 2 pcs baggage to fly to INDIA with no extra cost? I read that Dubai Airport has a baggage limit of 30Kgs while flying to INDIA. It will be very costly if I have to pay for the excess baggage( 16kgs). Guys, I am sure..Some one must have gone through this kind of situation, please clarify my question.

      Burj Al Arab

      Hello everyone,
      We are hoping to visit Burj al Arab Skyview Bar in March 2015, either for a cocktail or for afternoon tea and wanting a window seat to watch the sun set, is it best to go for Afternoon Tea or a cocktail.

      Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Again is there any way to improve the chances of getting a window seat?
      We are staying in the JA Ocean View Hotel, as far as I know it's close to the Dubai Marina (correct me if I'm wrong) and wondered what is the best way to travel to get to the Burj AlArab - is there a Mono rail in the area of my hotel and if so will this take us to the vicinity of the Burj Al Arab?
      Any advise further adviser/recommendations would be most grateful.
      Thanks.

      I will be travelling from London to Madras next week and have 7 hours wait time in Dubai on transit. Reading the rules, it looks like I cannot take a transit visa and spend better time. Are there hotels inside the terminal that I can book for 4-6 hours? Travelling with 2 kids it may be easy and comfortable spending this time. If yes, how much will that cost? Thanks!

      I'm travelling to UAE with my family (5 people) in January 2015. I plan to stay there for 10 days. I also plan to visit Oman via road in that period.
      I've already booked round trip tickets from Hyderabad (India)- Dubai- Hyderabad via Emirates.
      I have following queries:
      1. What type of UAE/Oman visa should I apply for to visit Oman via road and go back to Dubai (via road/flight) and then board my return flight?
      2. Will I be allowed to enter Dubai when I return from Oman? If allowed, can I go into the city or have to stay inside the airport (prefer going to the city)
      Please propose any alternate scenario possible in which I can travel to Oman

      Hi all,

      My girlfriend has been in Zimbabwe for the last 3 moths and is due to fly home to the UK very soon. Her connecting flight is in Dubai, and I plan to surprise her in the airport. I've booked to fly to Dubai a few days before for a bit of a holiday, and then I've booked us on the same flight home sat next to each other. (already knew her flight details and she asked me to book her seats)

      My question is, where will I be able to meet her? Will she be going through arrivals as normal? Or will she be transferred to her next flight straight to the gate?
      Her flight is in the same terminal, and her stop over is 7 hours.
      Sorry if stupid question, haven't flown much.

      Any help hugely appreciated!!
