My question is regarding DXB visa.
My trip is as follows, both are SEPARATE TICKETS:
DXB-YYZ Air Canada
Indian National (not eligible for on-arrival DXB visa)
Can I arrive from BOM to DXB on a Friday, visit Dubai/Abu Dhabi, and take a flight out to YYZ on Sunday? (So about 48 hours in Dubai/Abu Dhabi)?
I would intentionally like to have 2 days in between so as to allow me to visit relatives (will not be staying at a hotel)
1) Does this count as me "transiting", considering it's 2 separate tickets? What type of visa will I need to get in advance?
2) My other option is arrive in DXB 6 hours before my YYZ flight (and not visit my relatives). As they are separate tickets, I will have to recheckin luggage and hence will anyways require a transit visa, correct? (baggage services are not an option for me)
Thanks a lot!
