If your Cruise Nation holiday includes Emirates Airlines scheduled flight, we will issue your e-tickets approximately 14 days prior to travel, these tickets will need to be printed by you and presented at the airport to the Emirates check in desk where you will then be provided with your boarding passes. Online check-in is available between 24 hours and 90 minutes before your flight's departure time. Please ensure the airline locator is presented at check-in for your flight. Full flight details are provided on your confirmation invoice that has already been provided.


Advance Passenger Information (also known as API or APIS) means your Passport/Identity Card details and in some instances, your contact information, are provided to the authorities before you travel.

Emirates may only provide each country's Customs & Immigration authorities with the relevant API or booking data required by law. This is governed by Data Protection laws applicable in the UK and the requesting country.

It is important that you provide API for each passenger travelling with you. Any inaccurate or incomplete data provided could delay your journey, either at check-in or with the immigration authorities. Cruise Nation nor Emirates Airlines can accept responsibility for incorrect or incomplete data provided.


Please go to the website www.emirates.com. Click on “Manage an existing booking” in the red icons on the right hand side of the screen and enter your last name and Emirates booking reference (which can be found on your confirmation letter) then click “Retrieve booking”.

On the next page, underneath “What would you like to do” click on “Add passport information” and you will then be asked to provide a valid email address for yourself. Once this field has been completed you need to click on each passengers name on the left hand side to add the API data. Ensure you click on “Save Information” after entering the details so that they are submitted and stored.


Ideally you should have provided your API by no later than 21 days prior to travel. Emirates will accept data from the moment that your booking has been made through us.
