Buying gold in Dubai Airport

I'll be travelling to Dubai in a week and have a 3hr layover at Dubai. Are there any good shops in the Airport where I can get gold jewelery at reasonable prices?

You can compare the prices from the country websites or newspaper sites. Advantage of Dubai gold is mainly the guarantee of purity, and tax free. Quite likely it will be cheaper than Pakistan. 3 hours are more than enough, as there is only one outlet for gold jewellery and bars.

I also went to Dubai airport buying gold is quiet similar as India just you change your currency into Dirham and go to terminal 3 because terminal 3 is best for buying gold. And it has cheap rates compared to India. So best of Luck. And if you are going to dubai have a safe journey........

I dont know what price they are going to charge for gold bar in the airport but when i bought my gold coin they charge me the price of gold (same at that day ) + 10 dhs commision ! so its how they charge in gold souk you can compare when you got there obviously the airport is tax free but it doesnt make much different in price because im sure they pay more rent then people pay in gold souk !!! i think it will be more expensive than outside as everything in the airport is more expensive ( sorry for my english )

Are there any new custom restriction in buying gold from Dubai. Someone told me that male can buy only upto INR 50000 and female upto INR 1 lac. Anything above this amount has to pay customs at Dubai airport? It doesn't make sense to me why would I pay customs for buying from you.

Is anyone aware of any such new rule since last month?
