In-check under 18

Dear people,

After I finish my school exams, I would like to visit Dubai and Abu Dhabi with a friend of mine. I've been already twice in Dubai (with my parents), my friend not. We're both 17-years old (in August we will become 18).

Obviously, we are allowed to fly and travel. But are there any possibilities to overnight there (book a hotel room) in this situation. I travel with official governmental documents, which says that I got permission from my parents to travel.

I would really appreciate an answer

Kind regards,

On which passport are you travelling? There is a age limit but one TA members has mentioned his experience of his young friends\ family arriving Dubai without any issue.

You have a letter from parents which is fine but i would suggest to check with airline / Dubai customs and hotel first.
