Removals to the United Arab Emirates (UAE)
If you are planning on moving to the UAE, whether to Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah or another location, we have the expertise to tailor the move to your individual needs.
We have an established, long standing and successful relationship with a network of dedicated removers in the UAE. We'll also help you with the paperwork for customs, and inform you of any restrictions and requirements for importation into the UAE.
If you want to store some of your personal items in the UK, we can also handle that for you in our modern, purpose built warehouse.
Moving personal effects to the UAE
Your household goods and personal effects are usually 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. This can, of course, 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.
Prohibitions and Restrictions
In general it is in your interest not to import the following items:
- Firearms & ammunition (real or ornamental)
- Swords, daggers, spears, etc.
- Military uniforms and equipment
- Inflammable goods & substances
- Plants & plant material
- Poppy seeds and flowers, leaves, etc.
- Foodstuffs, perishable or otherwise
- Narcotics and dangerous goods
- Offensive materials
- Tobacco and alcohol
- Statues and figures with a religious undertone
- Carvings and statues of humans - especially nude or pornographic
- Religious books other than Islamic

Everything worked well for us, no change needed. We had seen the B/G vans locally.
We were very satisfied particularly at the booking stage, especially when others in the chain changed the date more than once. The waiver arrangement served us well.
