I'm in an Indian Citizen and will be arriving from Houston,USA to dubai EK-212 flight and then have a connecting flight from Dubai to Lucknow,India EK-2126 managed by fly dubai 10 hours after landing in Dubai. I shall be staying in Dubai international hotel for those 10 hours and then catch the Lucknow flight at terminal 2.

My question is do I need to take any kind of transit visa for this as I would be in Dubai hotel for 10 hours and then have a connecting flight to catch from T2.

Also, how far is T2 from International hotel?

Which Concourse A,B, or C I should stay in hotel which is nearest to T2?

Appreciate your inputs here.

There is an airside transit bus between T3 and T2, so you can transfer between your Emirates and flydubai flights without passing immigration or requiring a transit visa. The bus leaves from Concourse A apron level. Any Emirates staff in terminal 3 can help you find it if necessary.

If you didn't happen to arrive at an A gate, there are also airside buses that will take you to concourse A.

If you would like to leave the airport during your layover, you can apply for a transit visa via Emirates by going to Manage your booking.
