FAQs

There are 4 FAQs for Visas.

Do I need a visa to travel to my Emirates destination?
Visa requirements for any destination depend on local regulations and vary according to which passport you are travelling on. Visit the visa page on emirates.com for specific information.
Can I leave the airport when transiting through Dubai?

This depends on the nationality stated in your passport and on the length of your stop in Dubai. Travellers of most nationalities require visas to enter Dubai, and regulations frequently change, so if you wish to leave the airport while in transit through Dubai, please check your visa requirements with your local UAE embassy before you start your journey. Travellers of certain nationalities may obtain visas at the airport on arrival. Please check the UAE Visas page.

For those who wish to stay at the Dubai International Airport Hotel while in transit through Dubai, reservations can be made directly via email (dih@dca.gov.ae), or you may wish to inquire into Emirates’ own Dubai Stopovers packages for those who wish to make the most of their time in transit. Learn more about Dubai Stopovers.

Can I still travel if my passport is expiring soon?

Many countries have specific requirements for passport validity, and often require passports to be valid significantly longer than the length of your trip – this can vary depending on your country of origin, as well as other factors.

Please check the passport and visa requirements for all countries you’ll be visiting on your journey, and make sure your passport has appropriate validity to cover your whole trip.

I have dual citizenship and more than one passport. How should I respond when asked for my nationality or country?
If you carry more than one valid passport, you must use the one you intend to carry on your travels to make your reservation.
