travel between terminals 3 and 2 in Dubai

Hi, My two teenaged sons will be traveling alone via Dubai. They will have two separate tickets and luggage to transfer. They land at terminal 3 and 11 hours later depart from terminal 2. What is the best way for the boys to transfer safely and free?

Transferring to or from Emirates Terminal 3. For your convenience there are buggies to transport you within the terminal buildings, but not between the terminals. If you are transferring from an Emirates flight to a flydubai flight, you have to use a dedicated bus service to the F Gates in Terminal 2.

Is this bus you mentioned free?

They can’t transfer free if they are on 2 tickets with no checked through bags. They have 2 choices:

A). They can stay in transit and pay Marhaba services to deal with getting their bags rechecked for flight 2, or

B) they can go through immigration, collect their bags, take a taxi or public transport over to T2, recheck the bags and board their flight.

Option B would be the cheaper route, but if you want to minimize stress, then option A is probably the better bet for peace of mind. The Marhaba bag service costs around 300 AED. Check their website for details at
