We are USA passport holders and will fly from Geneva to Domodedovo to Nukus. The flight between Geneva and DME operated by SWISS Air, the flight between DME and Nukus (Uzbekistan) operated by Uzbekistan Airway. SWISS Air arrives to International terminal at DME, and the flight departure Uzbekistan Airways from International Terminal too. The luggage will be checked until Domodedovo. Russian Consulate said that they are not issuing a Transit visas if the connections between flights less than 24 hours. Ok fine.
So, the questions are:
1) Are we staying in transit area until Check-In starts to the flight Uzbekistan Airlines? (9 hours between flights) Or will they Check us in as soon as we arrive?
2) What about the luggage? Will Domodedovo TRansfer Area Staff register our luggage to a new flight of Uzbekistan Airways without getting us out from Secured Transit area?
3) Is there any way to get transit visas in Airport in case of emergency?
HELPPP PLEASE WITH INFO. The flights starts on this Saturday.
Thanks in advance,
