hi,
have a 21 hr stopover in auh, traveling with us and israeli passport, my visa to china (next destination) is on israeli passport. what do i do if asked by immigration how i plan on getting to china w/o a visa?
I've only ever been asked to show my visa at point of check in. Once you have boarding pass in hand AUH-China, I don't see how that might be a problem. Anyone know differently?

If the visa was on your US passport, you should be fine. They could always find out (if it's in your bags they can search you), but I doubt they'd care. I'd never lie to them but if it doesn't come up, so be it.

According to Wikipedia, UAE doesn't admit Israeli passport holders, but would allow them to transit. This is likely not enforced especially if you don't literally show your Israeli passport. I'd suggest keeping your Israeli passport out of the equation and just getting the visa on your US passport.
ive heard of jews being asked if they have also an israeli passport, u suggest i say yes in such a case?

I don't think lying is a good idea, especially since you'll have your passport with you, presumably.

How much do you care about leaving the airport? If you are staying anyway, I don't think it will matter. If you want to leave, I think the visa on a US passport is safer, as then the Israeli issue is less likely to come up.

i am landing in AUH 17:50 with a connection to DOH 23:25. so 5 1/2 hours total. is that enough time to leave airport and anything worthwhile to do? i saw some comments about needing a visa? i am US passport holder if that matters. also, any kosher in AUH now? can it be arranged for delivery to airport?
any help on these topics is appreciated
