My Dad is stuck in Bangladesh. He went for a 2 months holiday and then COVID19 kicked in and Bangladesh stopped all flights in and out of the country. Qatar airways cancelled the return leg. The govt. has recently permitted certain airlines from landing again but flights are severely limited and flight prices are also through the roof!
I have been trying to bring him back to the UK ( where my family lives ). I booked flights on Gulf and then on Turkish and both cancelled flights suddenly.
I have managed to work out a combination.
Dhaka > Dubai with Biman - T2 at Dubai
4 hours transit
Dubai > London with Emirates - T3 at Dubai
Now, my Dad holds a Bangladeshi passport with UK ILR visa i.e. Visa on arrival at UAE does not apply to him.
I was wondering if he checks in checked baggage at Dhaka, can he somehow get this onto the Emirates flight? I contacted Marhaba and they said they can't.
Would he need to pass through immigration for going from T2 to T3?
