I am an Indian citizen with EU residence permit (Blue Card) from Germany, traveling from Germany to India via Dubai (DXB). I deliberately took a halt of 20 hours to explore the city for a day before heading to my destination in India, and according to various sources, I am eligible for Visa on Arrival (48 hours, 96 hours and 14 days).
I do however have a few questions:
1) My flight arrives DXB at 6:30 AM in the morning and my connecting flight to India is at 2:30 AM the next morning. Do I need to show any proof of accommodation?
2) If the answer to the above question is yes, can I skip hotel reservation and choose to show proof of residence of my friend and her husband, who are Indians but are residents of the UAE?
3) What documents will I need from my friend/her husband, if I opt for this route for the proof of accommodation?
