Dubai Layover

We are flying from deldi to Dubai and have a 17.5 hout layover we arrive around 1pm and leave the next day.

We are going to stay overnight in a hotel and thought we could spend the afternoon and the eveing having a look around, two questions

Would we require a visa (UK) and would we pick up our luggage or could we just use our hand luggage?

Thanks

Dubai is one of the easiest places in the world when it comes to Immigration clearance for EU passport holders. Just shows your passport, they might ask how long you are here for and which hotel you are staying ad they wil stamp your passport.

if you are flying Emirates you should get the visitor visa - and if the layover is due to their flight schedule, they will probably put you up in a hotel - you should check.

I did check and they would only provide a hotel if the flight cost in excess of 1000$

Anyone know about the luggage rules

Normally with a long layover like you have,check in in Delhi should give you the option of through check,or collecting your bag in Dubai for the overnight.Make sure you ask.

If the layover is less than 24hrs, Emirates will check your luggage through to your final destination, unless you ask them not to.
