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?
