Shipping from the UK to the United Arab Emirates

We can assist if you are moving to the UAE from the UK. Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah are three of the most common destinations which we move many expats to every year. Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE, is one of the most modern cities in the world and migrants will be able to enjoy stunning scenery and a high standard of living. The port of Jebel Ali is one of the busiest ports in the world and the Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZ) is a popular location for international companies.

Shipping to the UAE – Useful Information

In order for customs clearance to take place upon arrival of the shipment, the client must be present in the UAE at the time of clearance.

Clients should be respectful of the Islamic faith and therefore not ship any non-Islamic religious items.

Nearly all shipments will have a physical inspection by UAE Customs. If any prohibited items are found in the shipment, they will be confiscated and in some cases, explanation will be required from the client and possible penalties applied. It is important that you are aware of the prohibited items prior to shipping. A full list is contained in your Customs Guide.

Restricted items include records, films, photographs, magazines, and books and are subject to censorship by the UAE Ministry of Information.

In most cases, used household goods and personal effects will not attract duty. New items will however be subject to customs duty.

Please keep in mind that customs regulations can change on a regular basis so please contact us for further information regarding your move to the UAE. A full Customs Guide to the UAE is available upon request.
