I am travelling from Copenhagen to Kolkata. I have a 13 hour layover in Dubai.
- Do I need a visa for a layover of this length?
- Do Emirates provide anything for a layover of this length?

You will be able to apply for a 48 hour transit visa that will allow you to leave the airport if you so wish. You are responsible for your own activities during this layover. The airline does not arrange anything other than the visa sponsorship.
Transit visas for 48 hours are issued free of charge to passengers transiting through the UAE’s airports. You need to apply for the visa in advance through a UAE-based airline. This visa is not extendable, nor renewable. The validity of the visa is 48 hours from entry into the UAE, and you must leave the UAE within 48 hours from arrival.
