As I have never been to Dubai Airport T1, I wanted to ask whether arriving passengers can remain airside and board their onward flight without having to pass immigration. I am well aware that this is possible at T3, since Emirates uses the airport as a hub. But passengers on airlines arriving at T1 will most likely not connect to another flight (or at least not on one ticket and thus most likely need to clear immigration to recheck luggage).
My intention would be to fly the triangle CDG-DXB-AMS for the simple reason of flying on a B787-10. STA from Paris 22:35, STD to AMS at 00:40. With my passport I don't need a visa for the UAE and I would travel with hand luggage only.
