7 hrs in muscat airport and transfer with different airline

I have an itinerary initiating from Calicut (CCJ) to Muscat with Air India Express and then a layover of 7 hours in muscat. After which Muscat to Dubai with Oman Air.

I am a resident of UAE (have visa) and an Indian citizen.

I am assuming the boarding pass for MCT to DXB will not be issued from Calicut.

Can I collect the luggage and boarding pass from muscat airport without going through the emigration. Or will Air India express manage the transfer of my luggage. If thats not possible, which visa should i take to pass through emigration since i am a resident of UAE.

Also, since my flight is arriving at around 2 AM, where should i stay till morning as i cannot enter the departure lounge areas without boarding pass as the check in counters normally open 3 hours before departure.

Please help.

If your luggage is checked straight through then you stay airside, no visa required.

If AIE don't issue your Oman Air BP then collect it at the transfer desk.
