Layover time is 7 hours

Hi, I am Indian Nationalist. I am travelling to Belarus from India via AUH.

Actually abu dhabi airport says if layover is more than 4 hours, than person should have a transit visa. I am confused. Can anyone pls help?

If you do not plan to leave the airport and will remain in transit then you do not need a visa.

Hi Bhavya, I have done such trips several times (mostly Via Dubai). To give you concrete answer: If you don't exit the airport (no matter how long you are at the airport) you do not need a UAE Visa.

If you plan to exit the airport, utilise that time seeing someplace and come back for your onward flight then you are required to have a UAE Visa. Hope this helps, Belarus is really beautiful, enjoy your trip.
