    @adorp - if you pass through immigration you do need a visa - even you re-enter for your next flight in 4 hours. If you remain within transit, no visa is required.

    @Pharaoh - you need a Transit Visa which can be arranged arranged by Emirates Airline for its passengers or by Marhaba Services for those travelling on other airlines. Marhaba Services Tel: 00971 4 2162657; 2164629

    The transit visa only applies for those wanting to stay in UAE for between 8 and 96 hours.

    Hello Adore
    As you have a hold only for 4 hrs and you are not going out in the city you don’t need any visa for your further journey. Enjoy roaming around the airport.
