Some countries require that you have a stop over of minimum of 24 hours to grant you a transit visa. But UAE provides a transit visa as below:
- The transit visa is valid for 14 days, starting from your arrival in the UAE.
- If you are transiting on the third destination on your trip itinerary, you will need to have proof of a confirmed onward flight (i.e. an air ticket).
- Your passport must be valid for a minimum of 6 months.
- Transit passengers do go through a security screening, but no immigration/visa check. If you don't have a UAE visa, the scheduled departure of the second flight needs to be within 24 hours of your arrival in Dubai.
