Default Passport

Afternoon all,

Just a quick one, well, two.

Firstly - just got my old and new passports back. It's taken 2 weeks and a day since I gave them to Aramex. Fantastic given the quoted timescale was 'minimum four weeks'.

Secondly - my visa doesn't need renewing until October. I'm going away twice before then. Do I just take both passports when I want out and in of Dubai?

Shit, there's a third; I need to renew my e-gate. Is this impossible with an old passport + visa not in the new one yet?

Thanks

yes to this one. No problem.

Dunno about the e-gate, I'm normally travelling with the kids so it's not worth it for me.

Thanks pal.

Will pop down to Dnata and see what they say, it needs renewing anyway so might just have to wait until new visa in new passport.

Kids through e-gate shouldn't be an issue given the idiot level of some people trying to use it...

Potentially silly question, but I'm going to Berlin in a few weeks and wanted to know if my E-Gate card will work in Abu Dhabi airport or if it's just a Dubai thing?

The eGate Card, issued by the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs - Dubai (DNRD), in association with the Department of Civil Aviation, allows passengers quicker access through the immigration process at Dubai Airport, Abu Dhabi Airport and Al Ain Airport. More UAE airports will be added later.

Thanks. We are only there two nights so first night is planned at a prohibition era themed cocktail bar which sounds and looks quality.

I was concerned it was a bit flaky but speaking to the two best men it's thoroughly well researched so I'm looking forward to it a lot more now!

Also don't forget that if you have a Skywards Silver or above, adding eGate to that card is totally FREE :-)

The Mrs managed to get it put on her blue card for free (maybe because it was a renewal)
