Terminal 3 from one gate to another gate within Terminal 3

Husband and I will be arriving from Sydney, Australia to Dubai with carry on luggage and a boarding pass onto Rome. Flight lands in Terminal 3 and departs from Terminal 3. My question is will we need to go through security to get to another gate departure or what is the procedure please? We have 1 hour and 35 minutes between landing and flight departure.

You will go through security again but not as extensive searching as when you check in. You have enough time.

Yes you will go through security. Don't worry, lines look long but move quickly.

I often transit in that time span and although rushed always managed my connection.

If you flight is late in EK ground crew will meet the plane to assist with fast track transfer.

There are dozens of previous threads on transferring through Dubai, on both this forum and the TA Air Forum, which might be useful to have a look at for more information.

90 min connections are very common when flying through to Dubai to Europe
