Do you plan to actually immigrate into Dubai (will you leave the airport)? Without a visa you will not be able to leave the transit area of the airport. It sounds like you are just passing through Dubai on a layover. You will be forced to go through arrival security check after you deplane no matter what your Nationality is. Whether or not you are ...

Officially Turkey no longer issues Visa-On-Arrival at any airports. The Visa-on-Arrival has been replaced with an "e-Visa" which can be applied for electronically at http://www.evisa.gov.tr/ eVisas are generally issued immediately so you could potentially apply for one whilst in the airside area of the airport if you had internet access, however you will ...

I have done this quite a few times but only with checking into a hotel in between. This way you are covered pretty well if something goes haywire. With transatlantic flights from Europe, a well placed positioning flight on a low cost airline followed by a traditional airline flight the next day can save you an astonishing amount of money -- the tradeoff is ...

A word of caution: if you book two separate tickets you are completely on your own if things go wrong. If your inbound flight to Dublin is late and you miss the connection, the second airline will simply cancel your trans-Atlantic flight and treat you as a “no show”. If you book everything on one ticket, the airline will deal with any missed connection.

By default, you would have to collect your checked baggage and re-check it again. If you book your flights with airlines on the same alliance, you may have a chance to convince the check-in agent for your first leg to check your baggage through. It is not advisable to count on this, though.

You will always clear customs on your first entry point to Canada. That will be Toronto for you. Even if you happen to get in right after a very large plane of people who all need a lot of customs attention, you won't wait more than 30 minutes in line for customs. I think a two hour connection will be fine. You almost certainly don't have a terminal change ...

There's not much to misunderstand in the text you quote, is there? Transit-witout-visa is only available if you arrive and depart by air, which you don't. The American is visa-free for to the UK in any case, and so doesn't need a visa anyway. The Thai will need to apply for a Visitor in Transit visa in advance.

I'll add my anecdotal evidence to Paul's - we passed through on an international transit from Zambia to Australia a few years back and it was a fairly straightforward experience. Luggage checked right through as both parts were with SA Airways, and less than an hour to go from gate to gate. I'd allow at least 1 1/2 to two hours just to play it safe though, ...

From what I can remember of traveling through OR Tambo, when you arrive you will have the option to go directly to your next departure gate (as long as your baggage is checked through already). I did some reading of other posts on this site which were tagged for Johannesburg and it seems my memory of the process is correct. The airport is not as big as ...

She will have no problem re entering Canada as she also has a permanent residence card. We've travelled overseas before and no problem. But I think that we need to book a full fare flight because she won't be able to enter Japan for 12 hrs. and we don't want to sit at the airport for so long.

Yes you do! I had a flight from Europe which included technical stop in Sydney and I found about it the hard way - I was banned from airplane in Munich on 6th of February because I didn't have transit visa for Australia although I have passed passport and custum control! Chief of staff of Emirates airways airplane didn't let me on the plane because i didn't ...

It sounds like you have separate itineraries, because Terminal 3 is exclusively for Emirates and Qantas, and Terminal 1 is for all other airlines. Terminal 2 is generally reserved for low cost carriers. To start off with - there are no visa requirements to transit between the three terminals. However, as Terminal 3 is exclusively for Emirates - any ...

Anybody travelling with Turkish Airlines can get a free tour of the city, including lunch and sometimes breakfast. Turkish Airlines can't arrange a visa for you, you must have the right to enter Turkey. Because the tours have fixed departure times, this will only work if you arrive in the morning in Istanbul. If no earlier connection was available, you can ...

As a US citizen I wouldn't book a 2 hour connection in SFO, period. It has nothing to do with the formalities (although the last time I was through there it was nearly an hour in the immigration line--for some reason they had only half the booths open) but rather the weather. Some years ago a ~90 minute connection went bad due to weather, we did just ...

Yes, the Marhaba Lounge is open to all paying passengers. Bookings aren't really necessary unless you want to be escorted to/from your gate. If you're connecting from Emirates to Flydubai, you can use the shuttle service and do not need to pass through immigration or pick up bags. But if you are flying any other combination of flights, I would advise you ...

Unlike Vancouver, you do NOT pre-clear US customs in Kelowna - you'll be doing it on arrival in SFO. So naturally this will take more time. However, if your flights are all on the same ticket (booking reference etc), the airline must feel it's a valid connection, and you should be fine - if you're not, they'll have to rebook you. However, if you don't ...

There's also an option of a direct shuttle connection. ETS Air Shuttle has scheduled minibuses between JFK and EWR. The cost is $32 each way and, depending on the traffic, it takes 60-90 minutes. It may seem expensive, but it's a direct terminal to terminal connection without any additional transfers or requirements to drag your luggage around.
