Dubai-General Advice

Jump to last reply

I've never left the US before but will be going to Dubai to study for the summer. I am just looking for any tips anyone has on getting around airports (I'm stopping over in Amsterdam for 6 hours) and visas once I arrive. Does airport immigration grant visas around 90-100 days or do most people just get a 30 day stamp and then deal with extending once in the country? I am going to Morocco for the fall so it would save me lots of money not flying back to the US.

Also, are there any tips on money? If I have US dollars, will vendors in the Amsterdam airport take them if I want a snack? What about using credit cards in Dubai? Which ones are best for low (or 0%) exchange fees and are accepted by most places?
