I flew to Erbil on 13 May, transiting through Istanbul. I was nervous as I fit the profile of a potential jihadist - young, single, male, dark-complexioned, from an EU nation and mysteriously travelling to Iraq for 'tourism'.

Boat travel to Soqotra from Oman is now over until mid September at the earliest. There is still no definite news about when direct flights from Dubai will start. Currently there are flights to Sayuun in the Hadramawt but unfortunately no connecting flights.
Hello everyone - My long travel route includes an airport change in Dubai, landing in DWC at 6pm and departing from DXB at midnight. I have two large suitcases, one of which doesn't roll. How much is a taxi between the two airports? Are there any public transport options that don't require me to walk for more than 5 minutes?

Hello, I have a 6-hour layover in Dubai in 2 days - which requires me to change airports. This means I have to go through UAE customs. I have been reading that Dubai has strict rules on what can be brought in. I have a traditional Nepali Kukuri knife that I bought a couple of months ago as a tourist in Nepal, as a gift. The blade is about 10 inches long (25cm). I'll have the item in my checked luggage. Will this be a problem for Dubai customs or security?
Any advice would be appreciated!

Also, I do have the traveling with medication letter. Would it still be a problem that they aren't in their original packing?
