This question already has an answer here:

I am looking for flight deals and one of them require changing my terminal from 2 to 1. These are seperate tickets by different airlines.

I am wondering do I need to pass through immigration (I don't have visa for Dubai), or can I show my next boarding pass, and I will be allowed to change terminal?

Also how long it roughly takes to change from terminal 2 to Terminal 1 at DXB?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • If you check luggage and there is no interline agreement (or airline 1 declines to check your bag all the way through), you will need to deal with that as well, presumably. – Roddy of the Frozen Peas Sep 17 '18 at 18:01
