I'm a Indian citizen and currently don't have a UAE visa. I'm booked with Emirates from LHR To DXB and from DXB to IXM with SpiceJet with a transfer time of 2hrs 55min. The tickets are separate and I am travelling with hand luggage only.

I'm getting conflicting messages with respect to obtaining the boarding pass for my onward journey from Dubai to Madurai with SpiceJet. SpiceJet says I have to clear Immigration and check in only in their check-in counter. But Dubai Airport (via web chat) and Marhaba Services (on call) are saying I can get a boarding pass for any airline flying out of Dubai from Transfer Desk.

Am I sure to be able to obtain my boarding pass for my SpiceJet flight from the Transfer Desk, and has anyone experience of this?

  • Spicyjet just say "Passengers travelling on international flights originating from India need to get their travel documents etc. verified by the airline staff. Hence, after documents verified a fresh boarding card will be issued." – Him Aug 10 '15 at 13:58
  • Hence you can check in online and print boarding card before Emirates flight. – Him Aug 10 '15 at 13:58
  • Yes. I'm flying out of LHR – user1942627 Aug 11 '15 at 14:10
