Chinese, Pakistani, and Indian visas in Dubai? Easy to get?

Chinese, Pakistani, and Indian visas in Dubai? Easy to get?


Ok, my question is where is it easiest to get a Chinese, Pakistani, and Indian visa (for a Canadian) in Dubai, or Central Asia?

I am visiting Dubai in January, Iran (in the Spring), and then Central Asia (specifically Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan), in the summer. I am crossing the Chinese border, to Kashgar, then down to Pakistan on the Friendship Highway, and finally entering India at the Lahore/Amritsar border.

Of course, I will need a Chinese, Pakistani, and Indian visa, but I want to get them at the easiest consulate, or embassy in the neighbourhood. Should I buy all these tourist visas in Dubai? Is it easy there, or should I get them as I need them on the road in Iran, or Central Asia? I've heard the latter can prove bothersome, as some embassies are harder to deal with outside the industrialized world.

Getting a Chinese visa in Canada was really easy, no questions, and just 3 days, for $50, and I got 3 months. What can I expect in Dubai?
