Last year I learned the hard way that the UAE had different rules depending on which Emirate you were flying through. I originally planned for myself and my Polish husband to fly to Nepal via Dubai with a one night stopover on the way out. Flight schedules via Abu Dhabi were better, but then we went to check in we discovered that Polish passport holders need a visa, obtained in advance, unless it was a 4-hour transit or less through Abu Dhabi. So I got to stay in Dubai for a night, while my hubby had to arrange a new flight via India to Nepal... an expensive mistake!
We did enjoy the trek to Nepal though and travelled to Goyko Lakes, absolutely worth the hike to 5,000 metres.
