Connecting flight in Dubai - need visa?

by Erno Kapp
(Sasolburg, South Africa)

Sir / Madam,

Do I need a transit visa if I only need to switch flights at the airport in Dubai, i.e. I will not leave the airport?
This is for connecting flights from Johannesburg to Beijing and I am a South African citizen. The departure and return flights are three months apart. If yes, how long does it take and can I arrange this online? Cost?
Kindly respond to ernoka@gmail.com
Thanks
Erno

Transit visa NEW

Sir / Madam,
Do I need a transit visa if I only need to switch flights at the airport in Dubai, i.e. I will not leave the airport. This is for connecting flights from Norway to Srilanka and I am a Sri Lankan citizen. The departure and return flights are more than one month apart. If yes, how long does it take and can I arrange this online? Kindly respond to mckr1@hotmail.com

Thanks

Not required NEW

Transit passenger in Dubai does not need visa unless you go out the airport, you mean that your return flight is after three months from Beijing I think, As long as you have connecting flight within several hours that should be ok
Have a good journey
