I am an Indian citizen and I have a resident permit in the Schengen Area. I am traveling to Abu Dhabi Airport soon. I am arriving on Air India and departing on WizzAir Abu Dhabi 5W7043. I have a 13 hour layover, and have purchased two separate tickets. I am unsure if I need to leave the airport or not. I have had a bad experience in the past where I was unable to leave the airport due to not having a visa, so I want to make sure I get one in advance, but I don't know where to apply for it.
The last time I had a similar issue, the airport officials told me I could apply for a transit visa 8 hours before my flight for free, but I only had 2 hours to spare. I had to book an Etihad airlines ticket quickly and didn't have time to apply for a visa. This time, I can't find the website where I can apply for a transit visa.
I think I need Transit visa because WizzAir leaves from Terminal 1 in Abu Dhabi.
I have found a website (www.instadubai.ae) that claims to offer Transit Visas, but their prices are expensive and they have a very poor reputation. Many reviews say that people paid them but never got a Visa.
