Transit Without Visa (TWOV): Passing through an international
transit area of the airport in order to board a connecting (or
to proceed by the same) flight, without entering the country
(i.e. clearing immigration).
Unless stated otherwise, passengers wishing to TWOV must:
- be en-route to a third country (e.g. itinerary TYO-LON-TYO
is not considered TWOV);
- prove that they will continue their journey within the
prescribed period (e.g. hold onward tickets); 
- have documents required for entry into the country of
destination and for transit through countries en-route;
- remain in the transit area (airside) or on the aircraft.

Baggage belonging to TWOV passengers must be checked through
to their final destination.

TWOV is not intended for those holding stand-by tickets, e.g.
airline staff or other passengers travelling on industry
discount.

I'm German. I'll get a VISA on arrival in DXB, if necessary.
