Unhappy Transit Jeddah Switch Terminals Dilemma

Hi all,

My plan was to fly Emirates DXB-JED (because onwards F class didn't occur extra cost), and then turn around and go back to DXB on a cheap economy ticket. I booked the DXB-JED leg already, and it flies into North Terminal. I then booked Flynas from JED-DXB since it was the cheapest option. I did not know that it would be flying from the South Terminal AND that I would have to exit north terminal to access the south terminal. As far as I can find from information online, exiting the terminal means going through immigration. I am a US citizen traveling with my Canadian partner. This means we will need visas just to switch terminals in the same airport?

Is anyone able to clarify this, or should I take the loss on the Flynas flight and book an Emirates flight back to DXB?

Thanks!

Yep, it's about a 15 minute drive on a highway between terminals. Not something I'd want to do for fun

Flydubai or Air Arabia (to Sharjah) might be options too...?
