Moving personal effects to the UAE and Dubai

Your household goods and personal effects are allowed duty free entry, provided that they have been owned and used prior to importation. Before your shipment is sent, all necessary documentation must be submitted and you must be in the country in order to successfully complete all customs clearance procedures.

All books, CDs, videos, DVDs and magazines are subject to physical inspection and need to be packed in separate cartons and marked clearly. They will be subject to review and censorship by the UAE Ministry of Information. Your items will be released if nothing abnormal is found. This procedure will take from 10 to 15 days.

UAE removals transit times

Groupage or shared load consignments usually take eight to 12 weeks, door to door. Keep in mind this can vary depending on volumes being shipped, customs or immigration delays and weather conditions. Sole use containers usually take five to six weeks door to door. More information on shipping your belongings overseas by ship.

All Groupage consignments will be bar coded before they are loaded into the shipping container. This will ensure that no items are left at origin.
