Technically you do get a visa on a UK Passsport if entering the UAE - its simply automatically stamped in your passport on arrival - so no worries.

No. Anything you need is automatically stamped in your passport for AUS citizens

@Frank8789,

You will need a visa but as a Malaysian passportholder, you'll get free Visa on Arrival to enter the UAE for stays up to 30 days.

Just proceed directly to one of the immigration counters upon your arrival at the airport, and the officer will just stamp your passport.

Airline transit passengers travelling with a stopover at Dubai Airport (or any other UAE airport for that fact) who do not leave the terminal, do not need a UAE visa at all.
