We are transiting thru Dubai twice, going & coming, 7 weeks apart, both times we arrive on one airline & leave on another, there is no baggage transfer agreement & I'm want to avoid paying to have it collected if possible. Going we'll be in Dubai for 31 hours, coming back for 15 hours. We are Australian citizens.
I know we can get free 30 day visas which will be fine for going, but they will have expired coming back, I read somewhere that they can be renewed once, but I've also read that they can't be renewed. A 96 hour transit visa each time would work. Are they also free? Can you get a second one 7 weeks later?
