I am landing in Terminal 1 of Dubai International Airport (DXB). I want to take a bus to Terminal 2 to go to Kish Island. Do I need transit visa for 4 hours ? (India Nationality)


You don't need a visa to transit airside in Dubai airport. An airside transit bus runs between T1, T2 and T3; follow the red Connections signs or ask airport staff for directions.

However, if you travel on separate tickets, you must use the Marhaba service to transfer any hold baggage you may have. A fee applies for this service.

Timatic, the database which airlines use to verify passengers' travel documents, states in relevant part:

TWOV (Transit Without Visa):
Visa required, except for Passengers with a confirmed onward ticket for a flight to a third country within 24 hours. They must stay in the international transit area of the airport and have documents required for the next destination.

Additional Information:

  • Passengers transiting through Dubai (DXB) with separate tickets and checked-in baggage do not have to clear immigrations and customs if they use the baggage transfer service offered by the airport. Fees apply.
